Comment Policy

Comments on this blog are moderated, meaning all comments will be reviewed before we post them. We reserve the right to determine which comments meet our criteria for inclusion in this page.

We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, moderating and posting of comments will occur during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible; in most cases, this means the next business day. For more information on our comment policy click here.

While the USAF will not be collecting or retaining these comments in our records (other than what is required by our records retention schedules), this is a public forum and any information provided in comments may be publicly available. As such, please do not include personal details such as: names, duty locations, open or ongoing investigation details, a DoD ID Number, OSI case number, social security number, or any other information you do not want available to the general public. For more information, see our privacy policy.

Comment Policy

The purpose of this blog is to facilitate an ongoing dialogue on Sexual Assault in the USAF. We encourage your comments; your ideas and concerns are important to ensure that a broad range of individuals are active and informed participants in the discussion. USAF reserves the right to modify this policy at any time. 

This is a moderated blog. That means all comments will be reviewed before posting.  This blog is not intended to be utilized as a mechanism to report sexual assaults.  Any sexual assault allegations reported in this blog will be immediately turned over to AFOSI.  In addition, we expect that participants will treat each other, as well as our agency and our employees, with respect. We will not post comments that contain abusive or vulgar language, spam, hate speech, personal attacks, or similar content. We will not post comments that are spam, clearly “off topic” or that promote services or products or contain any links.
