December 8, 2020

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the report released by the Fort Hood Independent Review Committee today:

“It’s simply unacceptable to have one of our military installations, where our young men and women go to serve in the military and be safe, subject to either harassment, or sexual assault, or even loss of life.”

“I’ve asked the Senate Armed Services Committee to conduct hearings and determine if is this an isolated incident or if this is more broad or systemic within our military installations. This is a very, very serious matter.”

“This is not going to be swept under the rug.”
