Reported sexual assaults at US military installations worldwide increased from 2013 to 2016, with the most occurring in Army during the period, the Defense Department said a new report Friday.

The Department of Defense report details non-domestic abuse sexual assault allegations received and managed by Sexual Assault Response Coordinators at bases around the world.

Reports of sexual assault at Fort Bragg increased by 28 percent in 2016 over the year before, according to a summary released by the Department of Defense Friday. "This kind of flexibility allows the department to better meet the department's goals to increase reporting of sexual assault and decrease the occurrence of the crime through prevention". "Because the true depth of the problem of sexual assault is measured with scientific surveys of the military population".

The number represents 20 percent of all of the Navy's sexual assault reports, according to the report.

At Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, the Marines' other large base, 169 sexual assaults were reported.

"We can not be afraid to talk about sexual harassment and assault", said Maj.

"Whether it is through victim assistants keeping constant contact, intensive unit training that includes what happens after a report, or by leader focused training that takes into account signs of retaliation and vulnerability, we must dedicate ourselves to providing an environment that encourages victims to report and supports them through the process", Piatt said. It does clarify, however, that just because an assault was reported at a certain military base, it does not mean the actual crime occurred there.

The report, released Friday, covers the years 2013 to 2016. On May 1 of this year, Navy Rear Adm. Ann M. Burkhardt, Galbreath's boss, unveiled the Pentagon's Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military for fiscal 2016.

For the first time, the Pentagon has revealed data on the number of reported sexual assaults for each U.S. military base.

The Air Force Academy in Colorado had 44 reports, the highest for the Air Force. To report restricted allows the victim to seek medical services and advocacy with confidentiality.

For each of the military branches, as well as the joint bases and combat zones, the total number of reports in 2016 were largely identical to those in 2015. The incident could have occurred "while on deployment, while away on leave, or even prior to entering the military", the Pentagon told ABC News.
