But he explained, “U.S. military installations exist to serve the needs of the warfighter for training, logistics, storage, testing, and deployment. Simultaneously, the installation must also support the needs of servicemembers and their families, including creating a safe, healthy environment for parents raising children.
This is why installations often include commissaries, pharmacies, schools, and libraries. On installations outside the continental United States (OCONUS), these amenities play an even more central role in the life of our servicemembers and their families. Frequently, servicemembers do not have options available outside OCONUS installations due to language and logistical barriers.”

These inappropriate events are extremely divisive at home for good reason; in all cases, they place young children in close proximity with adults who are intentionally and explicitly sexualized.
