Alabama Guard hires assault response coordinator

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama National Guard has hired its
first full-time sexual assault response coordinator.

Chief Warrant Officer Rhonda McCrummen, who formerly held the
post at the 167th Theater Sustainment Command in Birmingham, will
oversee the Guard's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program
and Domestic Abuse/Violence Program.

The Guard said the program will provide guidance and support to
soldiers and their families regarding sexual assault and sexual
harassment.

In her post, McCrummen also will help direct care to sexual assault victims.

McCrummen said the prevention campaign is I.A.M., an acronym for
Intervene, Act and Motivate.

She said, "Intervene and prevent sexual assault, act to do what's right and not tolerate sexually offensive behavior, and motivate to keep all soldiers safe."
