How you’ll know military is serious about fixing sexual assault problem

By Staff | Nov 23, 2013

Having served in the military, I can tell you that your editorial (Nov. 21) on the sexual assault problem in the military misses the mark. You will know that the military is serious about fixing this when the following happens. It appoints a three- or four-star general, currently with command responsibility (i.e. not in an administrative position), to fix this problem. This general’s mission would include all branches of the military and report directly to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The goal: develop and implement a plan within one year of appointment.

Anything less, and you can take it to the bank that the military is not serious about fixing this rampant problem.
