Other Resources

If you (or someone you know) has been the survivor of a sexual assault by a member of the U.S. military, you may be interested in reading the booklet entitled “Responding to Sexual Assault in the Military: A Resource Guide and Policy Overview.”

It provides information about the definitions of sexual assault, according to the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as the specific charges that can be filed for particular types of assault. The booklet also outlines restricted and unrestricted reporting options; medical and legal options for survivors; what to expect during the reporting process in the civilian law-enforcement arena; what to expect of the criminal justice system; a list of resources for military and civilian survivors within the U.S. and on U.S. military bases overseas; and resources for civilians residing within the United States.

The booklet, as well as a book, For Love of Country: Confronting Rape and Sexual Harassment in the U.S. Military, are available from Sugati Publications at: http://www.sugati.org/Sugati_publications.html.
