Ft. Hood Investigation

December 11, 2020

Episode Notes:

The U.S. Army released a report this week detailing command failures at Fort Hood — the service’s premier base to train and deploy heavy forces — that led to violent deaths, suicides, and allegations of sexual assault. Fourteen officers were relieved of command or suspended. The report puts greater pressure on the military to change a culture across the services that has for decades permitted sexual harassment and assault, and raises questions about the military’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) program.

Emma Moore — a research associate for the Military, Veterans, and Society Program at the Center for a New American Security and non-resident fellow at the Brute Krulak Center for Innovation and Creativity at Marine Corps University — joins the Warcast to discuss the Ft. Hood report and the critical issues it highlights.
