The continuing issue of military sexual assault is not limited to the U.S.

Today The Age (Australia) reports on continuing problems of sexual assault at the defense training academy. 
A landmark report into assault and abuse in the military has found that more than 1100 alleged abusers are still serving in the ranks. 
The Abbott government will meanwhile "seriously" examine the independent abuse taskforce's call for a royal commission into sexual assault and abuse at the Australian Defence Force Academy, government sources have said. 
The Defense Abuse Response Taskforce, and relevant documents can be found here.

A 55-minute video exploring the issue can be found at this link on YouTube.

Sadly, this reflects the U.S. experience.
