Your recommendations sought: sexual assault in the military

Your recommendations sought: sexual assault in the military

Charles A. Blanchard, General Counsel, United States Air Force asks for your recommendations on reducing sexual assault in the military. Blanchard, writing at Air Force General Counsel Blog:

As anyone even remotely paying attention to the news already knows, the focus of many of us in the Pentagon (and the White House and Congress) is on the problem of sexual assault in the military. The leadership of all the military services is focused on the issue and the Air Force is no exception.

I don’t want this to be a Beltway conversation and it struck me that our social media experiment might be a good vehicle for getting those of you in the field to weigh in….

Click through to the post to reflect on read some questions he asks to get the discussion started and to offer your thoughts.

If you want to leave a comment at The Lead our question is what do you think about this use of social media?

Thanks John! We really welcome comments. If folks want a more private conversation they can email me at Charles.blanchard[at] This is an experiment to see if we can use social media to get more public comment/feedback to the otherwise insular halls of government.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
