It was the tragic story of Specialist Vanessa Guillén that inspired Staff Sgt. Kacie Suchanek to go public with allegations of sexual assault by another member of the Air National Guard.
"When it happened to me, she was the first thing that popped up in my mind," Suchanek told CBS News. "I understood on a deeper level the pain she went through."
Guillén's disappearance and murder in 2020 launched a movement in which thousands of service members who experienced sexual trauma in the military shared their experiences on social media using the #IAmVanessaGuillen hashtag.
