According to a report by the Associated Press, last year sexual assaults increased at two of the three military academies, and an anonymous survey revealed that sexual misconduct increased overall at the schools.
The newly discovered data reflects the major challenge of eliminating unacceptable behavior by those attending college on military campuses.
Numerous programs have been developed to prevent assaults, aid victims and encourage them to come forward. The difficulties reflect the larger challenge facing the military as they grapple with revelations that Marines and other service members posted nude photos on websites.
The AP reported that assault reports increased at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, while decreasing at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
