DOD releases sexual assault figures for Fort Drum, other military installations

Sexual assault reports at Maryland military bases increase

A new report by the Department of Defense (DoD) shows the number of sexual assault allegations received at military installations and combat areas.

San Diego is the second largest Navy complex following Norfolk, Virginia, which had the most sexual assault reports of any Navy base in 2016: 240.

During the 2016 fiscal year, JBER had the greatest number of sexual assault reports among Alaska's three military installations included in the report; however, JBER's rate of unrestricted reports also surpassed the others, too. "This kind of flexibility allows the department to better meet the department's goals to increase reporting of sexual assault and decrease the occurrence of the crime through prevention." said Galbreath.

The agency's report detailed sexual assault reports by military branch and installations.

Not all sexual assaults reported at a particular installation happened there, because service members can report an assault at the time and place of their choosing, the DOD said.

"We can not be afraid to talk about sexual harassment and assault", said Maj. Campbell spokesman in a statement.

The Army, the largest of the US defense forces, had a total of 8,294 reported sexual assaults over the four fiscal years, The Hill reports.

The Navy reported 4,788 incidents, with the Air Force following with 3,876 and the Marine Corps last with 3,400.

The report broke down sexual assault allegations by service and installations over four years, and found that the greatest number of reports were made in the Army - the largest of the USA military services.

In fiscal year 2014, the post had 212 unrestricted sexual assault reports and 50 restricted reports for a total of 262.

Among all military installations, Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the largest of the country's naval bases, had the most.

The military has about 1.3 million active-duty troops. The Air Force Academy in Colorado had 44 reports, the highest for the Air Force.

Seymour Johnson had 14 total reports in 2013.

It found that between 2013 and 2016, 8,896 complaints of sexual assault were made in the Air Force and nearly as many, 8,294, were made in the Army, the largest branch of the Armed Forces.

In 2014, Lejeune's number dropped slightly to 150 before ballooning to 164 in 2015 and then 169 in 2016.

In 2016, data showed a decrease from 6.1 percent of active duty women in 2012 to 4.3 percent in 2016, and from 1.2 percent of active duty men in 2012 to 0.6 percent in 2016. Once this occurs, "The allegation is then referred for investigation and commander (s) of the reporting Service member and alleged perpetrator are notified".
