THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
Long drive home yesterday from Billings, MT. It was a very good week for the documentary and me personally.
I missed my bride and puppies, but got to spend some real quality time with some old friends.
I came back with 5 great interviews and will be posting clips sometime in the next week.
I want to publicly thank everyone who contributed to the Indiegogo, campaign particularly, several anonymous contributors (you know who you are) who helped a great deal. Words are not enough.
I know rape in the Military is a tough subject. But, we have to stop it. These are the men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day. We must protect them.
Thank you to all who contributed so far in any way, financially or otherwise. It’s hard enough to tackle a subject this hard. It would be nearly impossible without your support. THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!

PROTECT OUR DEFENDERS APPLAUDS BIPARTISAN BILL TO CREATE INDEPENDENT OFFICE FOR REPORTING, INVESTIGATION AND ADJUDICATION OF MILITARY SEXUAL ASSAULT

It gives us great pleasure to announce the World Premiere showing of Justice Denied, Saturday June 8th at 6:30 pm at the Albuquerque Film and Media Experience. It’s been a long journey, and now we are about to enter a new phase.
We are already getting requests from our Nation’s Capitol to show our film there as well as various possibilities around the Country and abroad.
As we go into the final stages of post production, I want to thank everyone who has helped even a little bit. We could not have done it without you.
But most of all, we want to thank the brave men who came forward to tell their story and the brave women who came forward to support them.
Please don’t let their efforts go to waste. Continue to talk to your Congressional Representatives. Tell them to get behind The Stop Act. Only when we move the reporting structure from the direct chain of command will these men and women be safe enough to report their rapes without being re-victimized.
This won’t be an easy movie to watch, but we hope to see you there. And if you know someone who has been a victim of Military Sexual Trauma, male or female, please encourage them to talk to someone. There is help available both in and out of the Veterans Administration.

We are now at September 5th and in post-production.
Thanks to all who contributed money and in kind services to get us to this point.
Thank you specifically to those brave men who stepped up to tell their stories for this project. Within a very short while, we will begin uploading clips of the interviews. Soon after we get a finished movie to get out on distribution, we will begin posting whole interviews. We will then be doing more for guys who didn’t make it in time to be in the movie. We will continue to video the stories and post them on this site. Watch for it.

Hello. I’m Michael L Miller. I produce award-winning movies and I’m producing and directing this one with Geri Lynn Weinstein-Matthews, MSW, LICSW, Executive Producer/Producer/Co-Director/MST Advocate
I am also a Vietnam Combat Veteran. I live with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). That’s hard enough. I don’t live with Military Sexual Trauma (MST). However, a good friend and his family does.
JUSTICE DENIED is his story and the story of all of our active Military and our Veterans who do.
The Military, the VA and the public are finally starting to wake up and become aware of what this blight on our Armed Forces is doing not only to the survivors, but to their families, their communities and our readiness to defend our Country. They are realizing that the problem must be solved. Unfortunately efforts so far amount to not much more than band-aid treatment. We need serious change in the Culture of the Military and civilian oversight.
Women have been courageously speaking up and doing so loudly. They are getting venues and platforms and audiences to tell their stories. Now it’s time for the men to join their voices to the effort.
The Department of Defense says that some 19000 cases of sexual assault per year are perpetrated with less than a 20% reporting ratio. By their own numbers, the DoD says half of those are women and half are men. The incidence of sexual assault among the female population is higher but the numbers are roughly even. That’s because there are more men than women in the military.
“But wait”, you say. “Men in the Military don’t get raped.“
Well, yes they do! And it’s time to hear from them.
JUSTICE DENIED will tell what happens when an incident occurs and when it’s ( or not) reported and will set up a solution to make it safer for victims to come forward and report these crimes. We’ll look at the Culture of the Military to see why it’s not safe to report occurrences now.
As I write this, Congress has a bill the `Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act’ or the `STOP Act’ (HR3435) sponsored by Representative Jackie Speier (D)CA, and over a hundred other Congressional delegates stalled in committee. It sets up a joint commission with both Military and civilian representatives charged with investigating all reports of Military Sexual Assault and takes it out of the hands of the command structure.
Our whole goal with this movie is to lend the men’s voices and experiences to the effort to get this bill out of committee where it can be passed by both houses and signed into law by the President.
There are two ways to support our effort. First contact your Congressional Delegate and tell them to get this bill out of committee and 2nd, contribute what you can to see this movie become a reality.
