Protect Our Defenders, an independent organization set up to tackle injustices across the Armed Forces, cites other materials which say as many as 14,000 sexual assaults took place in 2016 but that only 20 percent were reported.
Notice the total number of sexual assaults is 43 in 2013. In 2016, there were 155 unrestricted reports and 44 restricted.
"If those numbers are rising that could be a positive thing in that victims are reporting more, not that the crime is happening more but that the reporting rate is up", said Gerdes. "As a result, the number of reports listed for an installation doesn't necessarily mean that the alleged incident occurred there".
Other bases that recorded higher numbers included Fort Hood, a U.S. Army Base in Killeen, Texas, that fielded 199 reports of sexual assault a year ago, and Camp Lejeune, a Marine base in Jacksonville, N.C., that received 169 reports. For example, the rate for active duty women dropped from 6.1 percent in 2012 to 4.3 percent in 2016.
The DOD on Friday released the numbers for installations, and combat areas of interest, around the world in the last four fiscal years.
