Embattled

Now comes a comprehensive report on sexual assault in the US military, issued by Human Rights Watch. For DP readers on this Memorial Day, we excerpt the summary below, together with two charts that capture the heart of the story.

We also honor brave young women like Samantha Jarrett, who have spoken out publicly regarding their own experiences, despite substantial risks to their professional and personal lives.

As much of America performs the annual ritual of commemorating our participation in the world’s wars, let us not forget survivors of the “invisible war” that takes place every day and night against our own service men and women.
