[Editor’s Note: During this busy time, multiple readers have submitted comments and contact entries asking us to share a recent Rand Corporation report regarding the risk of sexual assaults being highest at pilot training bases. To be fair in the reporting, Rand noted that the average sexual assault risk for women in the Air Force was low when compared to the other services. Few USAF installations had a total sexual assault risk that was greatly different from the service’s average.]
Something for you to add to your collection if you want. Men and women in the Air Force face the greatest risk of sexual assault at AETC (Air Education and Training Command) bases, according to a new report from the Rand Corp. The top three bases are all undergraduate pilot training bases. The highest-risk Air Force base for women, Vance AFB near Enid, Oklahoma, had a 5.2 percent risk of sexual assault, higher than the overall average risk of 3.1 percent for Air Force women.
I am not a pilot and I have seen some behavior that would make me fearful to date one, of either gender. Your article on USAF Songs of Rape & Pedophilia was an eye opener.
Alcoholism in and around Fort Rucker is also a concern of ours. Can you post this?
