Default Air Force Logo Honest answers to sexual assault myths
As Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month comes to a close, I want to take the opportunity to address three persistent myths regarding the Air Force’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program. These myths include a commander’s ability to start, stop or otherwise hinder a sexual assault investigation; what agencies can take a sexual assault report and the number of sexual assaults where the victim and the perpetrator are in the same unit.

Default Air Force Logo Heavy drinking: Highway to disaster
Heavy drinking is defined as consuming five or more standard drinks in one sitting. It is also considered "high risk" drinking due to the health concerns associated with drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. Many stories about heavy drinking are glamorized, not publicized, or forgotten altogether, so behaviors don't change.

Default Air Force Logo US Air Force Academy: Airmen Powered by Innovation, the video series
A human resources technician from the U.S Air Force Academy, Colorado, submitted a suggestion to adjust the pay grade and qualifications for food service workers as part of the Academy's summer hire program. The changes not only allow more students to apply for the position, but decrease the manpower and money used during the process.

Default Air Force Logo Sexual assault survivor: One Airman’s story
Sexual assault is a hot topic — one addressed in annual training and at commander’s calls throughout the Air Force — yet the details of victims’ stories are seldom mentioned. This is understandable. These crimes against service members are intensely personal. Also, as many survivors have learned, listeners don’t always know how to respond appropriately, which can make sharing one’s story awkward, even painful.

Default Air Force Logo ‘Learning from the Holocaust: Choosing to act’
This year, April 12-19 marks the observance of the Holocaust Days of Remembrance, with the official Day of Remembrance taking place April 16. The Days of Remembrance were established by the U.S. Congress in 1980 to memorialize the 6 million Jews, as well as millions of non-Jewish victims, who were murdered in the Holocaust and suffered Nazi persecution.

Teenagers may feel a false sense of anonymity and security when using Internet apps, which can lead to an increasing number of teenagers sending inappropriate content. Irresponsible sharing of pictures or other content could lead to damaged reputations and self-esteems, the attention of online predators, or jail time for the possession of child pornography. (Courtesy photo/Liz Jacobson) Ten seconds later and that picture still exists
It is important to use precaution when using photo sharing applications and social media. It is easy to protect yourself from online predators, but it is rarely done. The most effective way to keep information secure is to lock any social media accounts and turn all privacy settings on.

Default Air Force Logo Sexual assault prevention: moving beyond awareness
Every April since 2001, the nation has focused its attention on sexual assault awareness and the impact this crime has on those who have experienced it. This year, the Department of Defense deliberately renamed the annual effort Sexual Assault Awareness and PREVENTION Month. I want to take this opportunity to share with you how the Air Force is focusing on prevention of this crime – stopping it before it takes place.

Default Air Force Logo Sexual assault survivor: ‘You are not alone’
I remember the day like it was yesterday. My heartbeat echoed in my head as I attempted to dry my sweaty hands on my jeans. I was 21 years old, sitting in a Korean court room, waiting to be questioned by prosecutors. How I ended up there was unreal. Just a few months earlier I was happy; I had a loving husband, amazing friends and arguably the greatest job in the Air Force, but the color in my world had been stolen.

Default Air Force Logo Preventing sexual assault in the Air Force is our enduring responsibility
As we begin Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, clear signs point to the progress we have made in combating sexual assault. We can cite encouraging numbers in the areas of prevalence, reporting and convictions; however, this serves as only the beginning of an enduring effort. This effort must continue without pause and we must not lose sight of it for a moment.
