Kori Cioca shared her frightening story on HuffPost Live Wednesday about being raped while serving in the U.S. Coast Guard. In a conversation with host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, Cioca described a long period of abuse by her shipmate, and a rape that according to her, could have been prevented.

"I was prepared for war," Cioca told HuffPost Live, "I was prepared for what the Coast Guard taught me in boot camp, and they didn't teach me to be prepared for my shipmate raping me."
