Military: Sex assault victims are likely young, on large bases & ships

The report found commonalities among victims, and where they are assigned by the military, that continue today. For example, the factors that put victims at high risk of sexual assault – youth, not being married, and having lower rank – correspond to their assignment to large training bases and ships.

…”A large proportion of all sexual assaults occur at a relatively few large installations for each of the services,” according to the report. “The Army and Marine Corps, for instance, each have installations where we estimate there were more than 500 sexual assaults of women and men in 2014.”
