Some Soldiers May Enlist To Escape A Bad Home life

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) Men and women in the military are more likely to have a troubled past than the general population.

A new study finds men who serve in the military are two times more likely to have experienced sexual abuse when compared to their non-military peers. Female soldiers are more likely to have experienced physical abuse, alcohol abuse, domestic abuse and emotional violence.  

Researchers say these results suggest some members of the military may enlist as a way to escape their home situation.
