Serving Their Country

And we thought Demi Moore had it bad in "G.I. Jane":

An Army officer was acquitted by a military judge Wednesday of raping a soldier in her barracks room, a claim the defense said she concocted to keep from being sent to Iraq.

First Lt. Mike Hall, 35, had testified in his court-martial that a night of dancing, flirting and kissing with 1st Lt. Jennifer Dyer, 26, last August led to consensual sex, not rape as she alleged.

He said Dyer invited him into her room at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and that, during two short episodes of intercourse, he stopped both times when she said "No."
Hall was also acquitted on an adultery charge but convicted of having sex without informing his partner that he had genital herpes.

The sex transmission charge is part of the military justice code that refers to acts "unbecoming of an officer and a gentleman."
It's pretty hard to be a gentleman when after you've spent six straight months in close confinement with male soldiers a female is introduced to the company. Having talked to a few Army buddies about this in the past, it's easy to understand how desirable any woman can be for a soldier in that situation - with or without herpes.
