Unfortunately, there have been a lot of stories in the news lately about sexual assault in the military. Sexual assault is intentional sexual contact without consent. Oftentimes victims feel overwhelmed, alternating between feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, and numbness (feeling nothing at all). Sexual assault can happen to both men and women, and perpetrators can also be male or female. In addition, 85 percent of sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.
