US Armed Forces Sexual Assault

Add on four more pages to the thesis statement below (on the second page). Refer the prompt for what should be in the paper.

Prompt: One of the most beneficial exercises in a course exploring ethics is to develop a paper that allows you the opportunity to create connections between your personal view of ethics and the theory under discussion. The nature of ethical decision making encompasses recognition, analysis and resolution. We often don’t make a decision because it’s ethical, but rather, because it makes sense from our personal view of the situation. That is, ethical decisions happen “after the fact” as we begin to see the actual implications of the decision.

With this in mind, your paper should explore current ethical issues in the workplace that are relevant to your current career or the career that you are preparing to pursue.

• Evaluate and revise an ethics program to increase ethical behavior within an organizational environment.
• Create and systematically apply a defensible ethical moral framework to a contemporary ethics issue. To systematically apply the ethical moral framework, you must use the framework consistently as you describe the ethics issue. Explore the issue using the framework you create. HINT: This is done through the application of an ethical theory.

Sexual Assault in the US Armed Forces
In a recent study by the Pentagon, there has been a 50% increase in the cases of sexual harassment and rape occurrences in the US Armed Forces. The report indicates that more than 26,000 military personnel were sexually assaulted in 2014 alone, with only 3,370 cases being reported (Cooper, 14).This paper will provide a critical and detailed analysis of the immediate ethical issue concerning the increased cases of rape and sexual assault in the US Armed Forces. Also, it will provide a detailed explanation of why the number of the sexual assault incidents are continuously increasing in the US Armed Forces. The subject of sexually related assault incidences in the US Armed Forces is a significant matter of concern that needs to be addressed keenly and exhaustively in terms of ethics and moral frameworks.
The discussion concerning the ethical issue in this matter will rely on the data from the recent research on branches of the US Armed Forces carried out by the Pentagon concerning sexual harassment in the military. These reports will provide factual data and statistics concerning the number of sexual assault incidents reported in the country’s military. Moreover, together with other materials, this paper will; first and foremost, define the contemporary circumstances relating to sexual harassment issues in the US Armed Forces. Secondly, it will discuss the ethical concerns surrounding this issue and its effects on the victims of these incidents in the US Armed Forces. Additionally, it will illustrate the key causes attributed to the constant annual increase in the rate of sexual assault incidents reported in the US Armed Forces. In conclusion, the discussion will point out several measures which can be implemented to counter the increasing rated of sexual harassment cases.
