"Lost Honor" is a training video and discussion guide produced by the Marine Corps Defense Services Organization (DSO) with the support of Judge Advocate Division, Headquarters Marine Corps.  It is part of the Marine Corps' larger effort of ending sexual assault and focuses on alcohol-facilitated sexual assault and the consequences of sexual assault for the offender.  The goal of this training is to fight sexual assault by helping Marines understand 1) what conduct is a sex offense; 2) how predatory sexual behavior is not consistent with our Core Values; 3) that there are lifelong consequences that stem from being a sex offender; and 4) that each Marine can prevent sexual assault by asking him or herself one question in sexual situations: "How do I know this is what he/she wants?"

 What's different about this training is that you will hear from real Marines, not actors. These are Marines who joined the Corps for the same reasons most Marines joined, who were doing well in the Marine Corps, who loved being Marines - and in their own words, they're going to tell you why they will now be labeled sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

The DSO remains committed to zealously, ethically, and effectively representing Marines and Sailors and it is our hope that this video and discussion prevents Marines from committing sexual assault or putting themselves in situations that could lead to allegations of sexual assault - even one less client is a success story.  If you have questions about this training, please contact us.

In addition to the discussion guide, you may also download the entire video - it is a very large file (~200 MB) so please be patient during the download process.
