SecAF: AF committed to preventing sexual assault

  • Published


In observation of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James released a video charging all Airmen to join senior leaders and take action against sexual assault.

“General Welsh, Chief Cody and I are committed to an Air Force where everyone is valued and treated with dignity and respect,” James said. “We will continue to work hard on sexual assault prevention and our efforts to eliminate this problem … this terrible crime.

“Taking care of our people — uniformed and civilian Airmen — is my top priority. And I charge you in doing the same by taking care of each other. Be good wingmen!”
