The Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston is the most senior enlisted soldier in the U.S. Army and the eyes and ears for all other enlisted service members. He sat down with Mimi Geerges to discuss preventing sexual assault and suicide in the Army.

  • The goal is to reduce sexual harassment, assault and suicide rates to zero, said Grinston.
  • These incidents have increased in recent years in part because the Army has focused more on response than prevention, he explained.
  • Strengthening connections and building a culture of knowing and understanding people are key, said Grinston.
  • Moving training from the three-week mark to the three-day mark has led to a 50% decrease in sexual harassment and assault, he said. Suicide rates appear to be declining this year as well.
  • Fusion Directorates, leader engagement tools and collaboration with other services and countries are some of the other Army initiatives Grinston highlighted.
