SHARP Summit attendees explore harsh realities of sexual misconduct

Last week, at the U.S. Army’s first SHARP summit, Protect Our Defenders Advisory Board Member Major General Robert Shadley (Ret.) explained how sexual assault is costing our military the best and brightest:

“The main thing I want to reemphasize is that SHARP is not a personnel issue; it is a readiness issue, a go-to-war issue. We need every man and woman in our formations to be able to come to work every day and do the best job they can. We can’t afford the tragic distractions of sexual misconduct, particularly as the military downsizes. Let’s take this to heart and do what we’re supposed to do as leaders in the United States Army.”

Gen Shadley is responsible for uncovering and investigating the military sexual abuse scandal known as The GAMe at the U.S. Army Ordnance Center and Schools at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, where he served as its Commanding General.
