U.S. Army Celebrates Trans Major Rachel Jones’ Journey from Depression to Authenticity in Celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride (VIDEO)

The U.S. Army has chosen to highlight Maj. Rachel Jones’ personal journey, a transgender “woman” who is the head of the U.S. Army Sustainment Command’s Cyber Division.’

In a recent Army publication, they claimed that it was Jones’ transition from male to female that brought hi, back from the brink of severe depression and suicidal tendencies.

They failed, however, to mention that transgenderism has one of the highest rates of suicide after transitioning. Not to mention the inadequate access to medical care and mental health services once the person has transitioned.

From the U.S. Army:

Coming out as a transgender female saved Maj. Rachel Jones’ life.

The U.S. Army Sustainment Command Cyber Division chief, G6 (Information Management), struggled with depression and suicidal ideation for most of her life. Today, she is living her truth and is no longer battling depression or suicidal thoughts.

The road to self-acceptance was not easy for Jones. Before coming out privately to her therapist, Jones lived every day deeply depressed and suicidal.

“When I was growing up in the 80s and 90s there was a lot of anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric. I don’t think many people meant to do that, but it’s something I heard as I was growing up repeatedly. So much so that I was convinced I was inherently evil for being transgender,” said Jones. “The pressure of hiding all of the time was so bad I grew up depressed and suicidal to the point that I always had a plan to end my life.”

Jones, however, feels lucky to be alive today. “Even when deployed, the greatest threat to my own safety was myself,” she said.

The risk of depression, post-traumatic stress and suicidal ideation is twice as high for LGBTQ+ veterans and Soldiers who have concealed their true selves than non-LGBTQ+ veterans and Soldiers, explained master resilience trainer, Stephanie Allers, who serves as a program specialist and suicide prevention liaison in the ASC G1 (Human Resources) Readiness and Resilience Division.

Do we  really want to prioritize projecting a particular message to the world with our military forces?

This institution is ultimately responsible for defending the nation and guaranteeing national security, not providing psychological counseling or promoting political agendas.

What are we doing?

      While I was in it was”don’t ask…Don’t tell”
      Then it became okay to be…
      Glad I got out before they make it mandatory.

    Amen brother! I’m a vet and a firm supporter of our military. But, no way in hell would I encourage enlistment today. I feel so bad for the good men and women trapped in the screwed up mess that claims to be the United States armed forces.

    Major Rachel Jones needs to resign or the Army needs to follow Regs dealing with weight. Even as a Man I can tell he is over weight in his Camouflage uniform. God only knows how much he would be overweight according to the Women standards. While I know the Armies standard is not like the Marines I’m sure he or she needs to be in a Fat Farm program. They keep people out of the Military for different things like Tattoos and a lower score on the entry exam but yet they allow these folks to darn the uniform. I’m sorry I use to say I was proud to serve now I say I’m retired.

    The future of our country is SCARY when “confused” individuals are supposed to be protecting us.

    The US Army and M.A.S.H. have another common element. They are both comedies.

    Is this story designed to bring in lots of recruits? Did the Army hire the same marketing company that came up with the Bud Light Dylan Mulvaney ad for AB? Is the Army bending its fitness regulations to “accommodate” this guy? Looks like he couldn’t run around the room much less a mile if full gear. He certainly hasn’t missed a meal.

    YOU reject this comment if you want to, we all KNOW there is NO freedom of speech anymore! The Devil in in the details! This perv is NOT fit to be a fighting man in the U.S. Military and whether you control what I say does NOT mean I won’t still say what I mean!
