SAVE[ing] the Military?

Rep. Andy Bar (R., KY) has introduced the Military SAVE (Sexual Assault Victims Empowerment) Act, which would amend titles 10 and 38 of the United States Code "improve the treatment of members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are victims of military sexual assault."

Sexual assaults in the military have surged within the past year: one AP report noted a 50% increase over the past year. While President Obama recently singed the National Defense Authorization Act, which encourages victims to report sexual assault, the law did not "include a provision that would have stripped commanders of the power to oversee the prosecutions."
