The Case of Vanessa Guillén: Military Crimes in the United States


Vanessa Guillén enlisted in the U.S. Army shortly after graduating high school, fulfilling a dream that she had since childhood (Carrega & Martinez, 2020). Vanessa enjoyed lifting weights, playing soccer, and listening to Bad Bunny (Diaz et al, 2020 & ABC 11, 2020) Originally from Houston, Texas, she would become a small arms repair soldier and be posted at Fort Hood, the largest active duty armored military base in the United States (Yang et al, 2020 & Carrega & Martinez, 2020 & U.S. Department of Defense, n.d). It was from here that Guillén would disappear.
