General David G. Perkins, commanding general of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, visited with students of the U.S. Army Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention, or SHARP Academy at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Thursday, Jan. 14. During the visit, Perkins discussed the importance of the students' positions as victim advocates (VAs) and sexual assault response coordinators (SARCs) and, the emphasis the Army places on facing the sexual harassment and assault menace to Soldier and unit readiness. "Don't confuse what you are for and what you do," Perkins told the students. "What you do is the title you hold. What you are for is to protect the integrity of the profession by maintaining trust among our Soldiers." Trust and what it means to the Army as a profession was a recurring theme during the discussion with the general. "The keystone of our profession is trust," Perkins said, adding that if sexual harassment or assault goes unaddressed within a unit, it sends the message that trust between Soldiers is not important.
