“Sexual assault is a criminal offense that
has no place in the Army. It degrades
mission readiness by devastating the
Army’s ability to work effectively as a
team…..It is incompatible with the Army
Values and is punishable under the
Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)
and other federal and local civilian laws…
The Army will treat all victims of sexual
assault with dignity, fairness, and respect.”
