In recognition to the loss of Pvt. Guillen, Vanesssa. The Army, Marines, Navy and Air force leadership has gone unchecked in their lack of accountability, disrespect of morals ethics and values. Dictate how others are to act while they disregard lower enlisted as their play things. Whether its control through rank, manipulation or threat. The military has a low retain rate that has been seen over the last decade not because of the day to day work, the details, the 24-48 hour shifts. the deployment. Every veteran to every active duty, reserve and national guard will always say the same thing. Its because of the leadership. There is no proper venting system and time and time again has it been proven that those with power, not all. But seemingly most abuse such positions for their own selfish desires. I want this to be recognized not as an immediate change, but a necessary one. For the line of communication and accountability needs to go both ways. Not when it just benefits someone. If there were proper lines of communication and accountability, instead of trying to save face. Many of the sexual assault, rape, assaults and batteries could possibly have dealt with before it occurred to begin with. Ft Hood alone has had many tragedies before Vanessa. Including two shootings, a bomb threat. The SHARP prostitution ring. Spousal abuse incidents and many other such situations that are swept under the rug to maintain the presence of a "professional army." At the cost of a real, morally and ethically sound army. I understand the military for what it is. The american military is meant to decide and win wars, whether it comes down to admin or a cook. To the infantry blue and kings of battle. Everyone is a fighter first. But if the military personnel cant be guaranteed the safety to operate on the daily without unchecked and unaccounted incidents like this without receiving repercussions and backlash because the higher ups were found guilty. Then what is the point of giving the option to even report it? Its manipulated and set against the victim. Military standards, practices, ethics and training need to be regimented. Not micro managed. Its not from the bottom top, without the lower enlisted. The higher ups have nothing to stand on. And they seem to forget that. There needs to be a symbiotic and respectful relationship between upper and lower enlisted within reason; This does not mean removal of order or change of command. 

The purpose of this petition is for not only the house of reps, senate and the president to recognize the support behind this petition. The need of change for our military for generations past, present and hopefully future. I believe in my military, more so good than bad. I want to be proud I served, as do many veterans and many active duty military personnel do as well. This is also a call for accountability. For the relief of the entire chain of command, investigation team, CID representatives. Not forced retirement. They deserve the same treatment as if a Private brand new to the army had done the deed. For their lack of involvement, shoddy investigation work. No search up. Lack of nco and co involvement. To the mps and CID officials involved all the way up to the chain of command. They need to be subpoena, tried in military court of a non biased partisan. And the heads of both leadership and investigation team should be immediately removed from service, for failure of duty.
