The Army has a zero
tolerance policy on sexual assault.
It is a crime that has no place in the Army.
It degrades mission readiness by devastating the Army’s ability to work
effectively as a team. Sexual
assault is incompatible with the Army Values and is punishable under the UCMJ.
The JBER - Richardson
Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program (SHARP) provides 24/7 crisis
intervention and support services to all active duty Soldiers who are victims of
sexual assault. Trained and professional victim advocates stand ready provide a
helping hand through support, critical information, and referrals for services
on JBER - Richardson and in the local Anchorage community.
Victim advocates assist
survivors in determining what they wish to do, where to get help, and whether
they choose to report the assault or not. They accompany survivors to medical
visits, court proceedings, and other appointments as requested.
Sexual assault is
defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by physical threat or when
the victim does not or cannot consent.

What should I do if I've been raped?
Find a safe environment — anywhere away from the attacker. Ask a trusted friend to stay with you for moral support.
Preserve evidence of the attack - don't bathe, shower, brush your teeth or change your clothes.
Go to the hospital emergency room – you can call the police from there.
Ask the hospital to conduct a rape kit exam to preserve forensic evidence.
If you suspect you were drugged, ask that a urine sample be collected. The sample will need to be analyzed later on by a forensic lab.
Write down all the details you can recall about the attack & the attacker.
Know that what happened was not your fault and that now you should do what is best for you.
If you know that you will never report, still consider:
Get medical attention. Even with no physical injuries, it is important to determine the risks of STDs and pregnancy.
Call the National Sexual Assault Hotline for free, confidential counseling, 24 hours a day: 1.800.656.HOPE.
Recognize that healing from rape takes time. Give yourself the time you need.
Know that it's never too late to call. Even if the attack happened years ago, the National Sexual Assault Hotline or the
National Sexual Assault Online Hotline can still help. Many victims do not realize they need help until months or years later.
