DOD: Reports of sexual assaults on Fort Carson almost triple

USA troops have reported more than 20,000 allegations of sexual assault at military installations over the past four years, the Pentagon said in a report.

In the 2016 fiscal year, Norfolk had 270 sexual assault reports, Ford Hood had 199, the Naval Base in San Diego had 187, Camp Lejeune in North Carolina had 169, Camp Pendleton in California had 157, and Fort Bragg in North Carolina had 146 reports, cited by Stars and Stripes.

The report breaks down sexual assault rates for each installation, which is the first time this has been done.

Tillis has six children. "It's a way of showing people that it hasn't licked me, so it doesn't have to lick others". The Tillis family said they plan to announce funeral arrangements for Nashville and Florida soon.

Shocking new data released from the Department of Defense, shows military sexual assaults are at an all-time high.

That is an improvement over two years ago, the report said, when 15 percent or fewer of sexual assault victims in the military reported it.

That represents about 21% of the sexual assaults investigated at all Navy bases. That number jumps up to 59 in 2015 and 44 in 2016.

"Whether it is through victim assistants keeping constant contact, intensive unit training that includes what happens after a report, or by leader focused training that takes into account signs of retaliation and vulnerability, we must dedicate ourselves to providing an environment that encourages victims to report and supports them through the process", Piatt said.

This also goes for three of Alaska's military installations: Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Fort Wainwright and Eielson Air Force Base. To report restricted allows the victim to seek medical services and advocacy with confidentiality.

Dr. Nate Galbreath, deputy director of the DOD Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, said that the military's reporting program allows personnel to report allegations of sexual assault at any time or place. In 2016, the most recent data the department has on the prevalence rates of sexual assault showed a decrease from 6.1% of active duty women in 2012 to 4.3% in 2016, and from 1.2% of active duty men in 2012 to 0.6% in 2016. Meanwhile, an unrestricted report is referred for criminal investigation and to commanders. The Army base in Anne Arundel County, the state's largest workplace, saw reports rise from 24 in 2013 to 47 past year - an increase of 95 percent. "A report could involve allegations for an incident that occurred while on deployment, while away on leave, or even prior to entering the military", he said.
