Sexual Assault

Staff Sgt. Corey Baltos, Army North PAO

Military orders from top brass in Washington D.C. are being carried out for sexual harassment and assault training at Joint Base San Antonio.

Local military officials say the Army’s Sexual Harassment and Assault Response Program (SHARP)  was ordered by General Ray Odiernio, chief of staff of the U.S. Army, around the time the Senate Armed Services Committee held their heated, marathon hearing on sexual assault in June.

More than 600 Fort Sam Houston personnel, both military and civilian, turned out for the SHARP training. Other branches conducted their own programs.
