35th Infantry Division mission success : Having been deployed to the Arabian Gulf and greater Levant region for more than six months in support of Operation Spartan Shield, the 35th Infantry Division continues to take its mission seriously and remain focused. One of the important elements of the Division’s ability to maintain its mission readiness and focus is its Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) program.

The SHARP program is one of the Division’s five pillars of strength (which includes: Soldier Fitness, SHARP fitness, Safety fitness, Stability fitness, and Sustainment fitness). As the Division nears the end of its tour, they’ve proven successful in their endeavors toward mission completion and Soldier care.

Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Bryan, 35th Inf. Div. sexual assault response coordinator (SARC), has been a credentialed Victim Advocate for the past five years through the National Organization for Victim Assistance, a civilian organization that is recognized both DoD-wide and among all civilian advocacy centers. The 80-hour credentialing course gave Bryan an understanding of the differences between sexual assault and sexual harassment, and instilled in him the tools of effective victim advocacy.
“I learned a lot in the course,” said Bryan. “The course opens your mind on how to speak and talk with people who have experienced traumatic events.”

Bryan explained the correlation between unit readiness, mission-focus, and a strong SHARP program. Read more
