The War Against Sexual Assault in the Army

In the war against sexual assault, the Army keeps shooting itself in the foot (Craig Whitlock, Checkpoint/Washington Post, Dec. 19) – To mark the end of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, the 188th Infantry Brigade held a potluck luncheon.  The deputy commander reminded his soldiers they were all “responsible for bringing an end to sexual assault and harassment,” according to the brigade’s Facebook account.  What most of the soldiers didn’t know was that the deputy commander, Lt. Col. Michael D. Kepner II, was himself facing court-martial on charges that he had sexually harassed and assaulted a female lieutenant on his staff.
