In 2012 the Department of Defense estimated that 26,000 female and male soldiers were raped or otherwise sexually assaulted. And overall, recent surveys of female veterans have found that close to one out of every four is assaulted by commanding officer. The new Gillibrand Bill – S. 967 – the Military Justice Improvement Act – would help break the chain of command that currently holds the power to prosecute the perpetrators. If the Gillibrand Bill passes then sexual assault will be prosecuted by an independent body that is not biased or uninformed.
