    Sexual assaults in the military rose nearly 38% from 2016 to 2018, according to survey results obtained by USA TODAY.

    That spike in crime within the ranks comes after years of focused effort and resources to eradicate it.

    The report, due to be released Thursday by the Pentagon, surveyed Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine personnel in 2018. Based on the survey, there were an estimated 20,500 instances of unwanted sexual contact – an increase over the 14,900 estimated in the last biennial survey in 2016.Unwanted sexual contact ranges from groping to rape.

    Enlisted female troops ages 17 to 24 were at the highest risk of being assaulted, said Nathan Galbreath, deputy director of the Pentagon's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office. The Pentagon will target troops in that age range for prevention efforts, he said.

    "We're very concerned about that," Galbreath said.

    More than 85% of victims knew their assailant. Alcohol was involved in 62% of the total assaults.

    A few people just got very rich. I'm glad that industry has never had problems with crime before.

    Not sure who would've picked that superfecta, but 51k-1 payout is pretty nice.

    My brother's girlfriend's cousin Vinny "The Cheek" said he had a good tip....guess he bet a decent amount of change on the race.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I've been following this now for a month or so and I can't believe this hasn't gotten more coverage:

    The virus has now spread to Goma, a city of 1-2 million, depending on what source you read.

    I still find it hard to believe that the coverage ever went away. I don't think it was ever "officially eradicated."

    It seems like the coverage randomly stopped in late 2014. Like, if I had to pick a month, November, maybe early November. Like the first, no, second, Wednesday. Right about then, it seems. Weird.
