Abstract : Child sexual abuse, and particularly, incest, is a recurring incident in the military. There is much concern for the victims of incestuous acts, how they will adjust, and what follow-up will be necessary. There seems to be a trend towards putting the abuser out of the military where the problem becomes something for society to handle. The family is relocated; the threat is still present; there is no meaningful occupation or notable income: no treatment and rehabilitation; no follow-up. If the Army is to live up to the slogan, 'the Army takes care of its own,' there must be some attempt at treating the abuser whether he is retained in his professional status or is released from active service. Parents United offers a viable approach to the treatment of the soldier who is otherwise a professional competent contributor to peace and relative stability in the world.
