Sexual harassment and sexual assault are the most under reported crimes in the military. Sexual harassment and assaults are crimes that have no place in the Maryland National Guard. These crimes degrade our mission readiness by destroying unit cohesion and breaking the bond of trust that must exist between Soldiers and Airmen. Furthermore, it has an adverse and lasting impact on the victim, and all the members of this agency. Sexual harassment and assault will not be tolerated in the Maryland National Guard.
