Once again, the Rand Corp., a global research group retained by the Pentagon to conduct a massive survey on sexual assault within the military, features in one of our blog posts. We referenced the organization and the ire of some participants concerning the wording and tone of some of the survey questions in our November 14 blog entry.
To gain important data about the prevalence of sexual assault in the American military, close to 560,000 military service members were asked to complete a questionnaire this year.
A recent media article points to the great division between the American military’s harsh and uncompromising policy toward servicemembers’ marijuana use and “the changing tide of both law and public perception.”
Just as is the case with millions of civilians, many military servicemembers go about their daily job-related duties without the need to access confidential or otherwise privileged information.
