Stats and links, I think you pulled this out of your southern orifice.
Sexual assault is alarmingly common in the U.S. military, and more than half of the victims are men. According to the Pentagon, thirty-eight military men are sexually assaulted every single day. These are the stories you never hear—because the culprits almost always go free, the survivors rarely speak, and no one in the military or Congress has done enough to stop it

The moment a man enlists in the United States armed forces, his chances of being sexually assaulted increase by a factor of ten. Women, of course, are much more likely to be victims of military sexual trauma (MST), but far fewer of them enlist. In fact, more military men are assaulted than women—nearly 14,000 in 2012 alone. Prior to the repeal of “Don't ask, don't tell” in 2011, male-on-male-rape victims could actually be discharged for having engaged in homosexual conduct. That's no longer the case—but the numbers show that men are still afraid to report being sexually assaulted.

“Son, Men Don’t Get Raped”
A family friend was the victim of rape in the military. She was discharged (not the rapist) because she got pregnant as a result.

Ahh here we go, yes much better than GQ. Just looking at women for now,.


"Preliminary findings of an extensive survey of 170,000 troops released Thursday revealed that 20,000 service members said they had experienced at least one incident of unwanted sexual contact in the past year, representing nearly 5 percent of all active-duty women and 1 percent of active-duty men. "

20% among the civillian population.
5% among the military population.


You are far far less likely to be sexually assaulted in the military than you are out of it.

From your Wikipedia link

In 2011, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that "nearly 20% of all women" in the United States suffered attempted rape or rape sometime in their life. More than a third of the victims were raped before the age of 18.[9][10]

vs

experienced at least one incident of unwanted sexual contact in the past year, representing nearly 5 percent of all active-duty women and 1 percent of active-duty men. "

Or perhaps you believe 20% of women in the US are raped every year?

McSally is the woman who, while still on active duty, sued the military for sex discrimination for ordering her to wear an abaya while on duty in Saudi Arabia. The military vets on the online forum I was participating in at the time attacked her viciously for not being a “team player” for that.

Read about this a couple of days ago.

In her statement McSally suggested that she had been assaulted on multiple occasions. It did strike me as a little weird that she had never reported any of the events.

That is itself not unusual. Many victims do not report, especially in the military, where the immediate chain of command ends up antagonistic toward the reporter rather than the reported.
