President Biden signed an executive order that will change how sexual assault charges are handled in the U.S. military. Decision making in serious cases like sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse, and murder is no longer in the hands of commanders, instead being under the jurisdiction of independent military contractors. This order aims to pursue justice for victims of sexual assault in the military and make the process more effective.
WY We Care: The military has always been a priority for your Cheyenne Chamber, and the Wyoming community as a whole. This order will help to keep our men and women in uniform better protected, and for that we applaud it.
