New Pentagon report shows military sexual assaults rising dramatically. @IAVA's statement:

"The report that military sexual assaults have risen by a third over the past two years, along with this weekend’s arrest, should be a massive wake-up call. It is appalling that there are more than 70 sexual assaults a day involving military personnel. Our troops can’t keep America safe if they are not safe themselves. We must do more to stop this troubling trend. Combating military sexual assaults and military sexual trauma has been and remains a top priority for IAVA’s members. Fifteen percent of our members are women, but this issue affects all members and their families.
