The National Guard has consistently claimed it is "working aggressively" to combat rape and sexual assault within its ranks. But in a series of groundbreaking reports, NBC Washington compiled the only source of nationwide data on military sexual assault investigations and their outcomes, finding the National Guard has only dishonorably discharged a single soldier for rape. Using our innovative survey, we exposed how this major component of the military hasn't been tracking critical data, how the National Guard Bureau did everything it could to prevent us from obtaining those records and allowed most offenders to walk free, while destroying the careers of those who were assaulted through retaliation.
