Vanessa Guillén, a 20-year-old U.S. Army soldier, disappeared April 22, 2020 in the early afternoon at Fort Hood, Texas from the parking lot of her barracks where she was stationed with the 3rd Cavalry Regiment. By June 2020, her disappearance had attracted national attention in the United States. On July 1, 2020, at a news conference, her family reported that a body found near Fort Hood was likely that of Vanessa Guillén but not confirmed. The main suspect in the case, Army Specialist Aaron David Robinson, had fled Fort Hood on June 30 and committed suicide on July 1 when he was discovered and approached by authorities in Killeen, Texas. As of July 3, 2020, the FBI was awaiting DNA results to confirm the remains found were of Guillén.

A few weeks before Guillén went missing, she told her family that she was being sexually harassed by an unnamed sergeant at Fort Hood, and that other female soldiers had made reports but the complaints against him had been dismissed.

It is time for the United States Department of the Army to take a bold stand against racial intolerance and discord against minorities and rampant sexual harassment against female soldiers by renaming Fort Hood, named after Confederate General John Bell Hood, to Fort Guillén after Vanessa Guillén.
