Thanks to you, thousands of people have signed Paula's petition demanding that the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Rep. Buck McKeon hold a congressional hearing about the criminal scandal at Lackland Air Force Base.
78 members of Congress along with Tailhook whistleblower Paula Couglin-Puopolo are asking Rep. McKeon to open an investigation about Lackland, but there has been no response.
We're launching a Twitter campaign (#AskBuck) asking Rep. McKeon (@BuckMcKeon) how many more soldiers need to be sexually assaulted before Congress investigates Lackland and legislates fundamental reforms.
Will you join us in tweeting Buck McKeon and demand a Congressional investigation? Copy and paste this message or click the Twitter icon on the right side of this page to take action!

Every single day, Protect Our Defenders is receiving new stories from our brave men and women in uniform that have been sexually assaulted – at bases across the country – not just Lackland.
But, the HASC Vice Chairman Mac Thornberry is quoted recently as saying, "My understanding is there is no evidence of a widespread problem."
Let's keep the pressure on. #AskBuck today!
Thanks for your continued support,
-Protect Our Defenders
