Victim Advocate of the Month

advocate
Name: Rudolph Baisa
Duty title: F-22 Crew Chief
Organization: 412th AMXS/MXARA
Years of service: 11 years
Hometown: San Francisco, Calif.
Why did you become a volunteer victim advocate:
I became a victim advocate because I believe that individuals who experience sexual assaults have had a traumatic event in their lives and need all the help they can get. I feel that many are not educated on how rape is a serious matter and that it affects people emotionally and physically. I hope my assistance with those affected will help heal both men and women from the trauma of sexual assault.
