  1. I always wondered about Reinard Beaver – he was a retired Chaplain from the Army when I was stationed at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis and I had a roommate that moved in with him and I always wondered why. He also had two twins that were living him him that were probably 18 or 19 at the time. I was raped while at Fort Lewis (not by Reinard) and I think there was a culture of that going on at the time.
