According to the latest DoD report, more than 35,000 troops reported unwanted sexual contact in fiscal year 2021. The report also found that trust in the way that the military handles such cases ahs dropped. The Air Force recently launched a new pilot program to better address the issue.

  • The intent of the program is to co-locate the services survivors of sexual assault may need to help ensure survivors receive the help they need, Gina Ortiz Jones, under secretary of the U.S. Air Force, said.
  • The pilot program is currently operating at six bases in and outside of the U.S., and the preliminary qualitative feedback has been positive, she explained.
  • If the Air Force has to operate in a CR for a year, it loses $12 billion of buying power, which will have a negative effect on the Air Force and its programs, according to Ortiz Jones.
