It was a STUPIDITY in the first place, for basic training to go CO-ED – and this should be immediately reversed, to remove the temptation in both directions. Female trainees should be trained by female instructors and male trainees should be trained by male instructors. Even in Technical Training School at Francis E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, male and female trainees had separate sleeping barracks. I don’t recall sexual assaults being a problem at that time. Sexual predators who commit sexual assault, should be handed stiff sentences of a minimum ten years in federal prison, which would also carry a dishonorable discharge. The higher the rank of the perpetrator, male or female, the harsher the sentence. Believe me, others will soon get the message. Sentences of a few months washing dishes and sweeping floors, which is now considered “hardlabor” will reform nobody. During my first USAF assignment to Kadena AB, Okinawa, I worked at the Base Stockade. During that time, a sentence of “hard labor” actually consisted of hard labor…… usually followed by a transfer to Lompoc Barracks, California or to Ft Leavenworth, Kansas and a dishonorable discharge. We had almost no repeat offenders….. at least not in the military. Placido Salazar, USAF Retired Vietnam Veteran (210) 422-0378

Placido -This month, a shocking Department of Defense report estimated that 26,000 sexual assaults took place in the military last year. This is disgraceful: one sexual assault is

too many. But still thousands of rapes in the military are never reported, let alone brought to trial. There is a dangerous deafness to sexual assault in the military and many survivors suffer in silence.

Stand with Victims of Military Sexual Assault: Add your name to join the fight to fix the military's response to sexual assaults.
Democrats in Congress are taking a stand to better protect our service men and women -- but they need our support to ensure that independent prosecutors are deciding whether to prosecute sexual assault cases. Will you step up and add your name in support of the Military Justice Improvement Act?

Thank you for being a part of this. Kelly Kelly Ward DCCC Executive Director
