Veterans, Pentagon contend with sexual assault in military from Minnesota Public Radio, 10/12/12

Monday, October 15, 2012

The article reports, “The Department of Defense received 3,192 reports of sexual assaults last year, a number that includes instances of rape, aggravated sexual assault, abusive sexual conduct and indecent assault. However, Defense Department officials estimate the actual number is closer to 19,000. While men also suffer sexual violence, advocates for women veterans say female service members are more likely to be raped by a comrade than killed in the line of duty.”
