Every day, in the United States, new members of the military are introduced to vigorous training that's designed to prepare them physically and mentally for their awaiting battles. One thing that these military training academies have failed to prepare service members for in the past, continues to be a personal battle among many?sexual assault committed by fellow soldiers.

Statistics found in the ?Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military Fiscal Year 2013? reveal that about 26,000 military troops, male and female, were sexually violated during the 2012-2013 year. Along with the initial trauma after being sexually victimized by their peers (who are meant to be their brothers and sisters in combat), martyrs of sexual assault also face other, sometimes lifelong, repercussions from their assault. As if dealing with emotional trauma isn't enough, military sexual assault victims often attempt to deal with other major health issues linked to their assault and may have the hardship of paying for expensive medications or therapy just to get through a ?normal? day. With the growing number of military sexual assault victims and the severe effects they're burdened with, it is just as vital that soldiers receive proper training to prepare them for deployment and war as it is important that soldiers receive training to combat this tragic issue occurring amongst their own. Due to the high number of reports, the issue of sexual assault within the military is now gaining more obvious attention from military leaders and congressmen. As Congress and the military work together to exchange ideas on prevention techniques, new programs and technology?like phone apps that offer sexual assault intervention techniques?are emerging to target the issue.

[...] Keeping in mind Major General Snow's wish for further efforts to target sexual violence within the military, it is crucial that in order for significant termination of sexual abuse, revision and enforcement of prevention programs must take place to potentially prevent men and women from experiencing similarly cataclysmic fates.

[...] This report also displays the pattern of sexual assault reports within the military along with other corresponding trends and what programs/methods have been established in response to the trends. I will use the information on the prevention programs and their results to support the concept that efforts are being made by the government to terminate the issue of sexual abuse from fellow service members within the military.
