Alabama Guard hires sexual assault response coordinator

The Alabama National Guard has hired its first full-time sexual assault response coordinator.

It's an issue in the military that has been getting Pentagon level attention and can affect a service members well-being.

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Rhonda McCrummen will manage and implement the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program and Domestic Abuse/Violence Program.

The programs will educate soldiers on prevention and will provide guidance to soldiers and their families regarding sexual assault and harassment. McCrummen will also respond and coordinate care to victims and family members of sexual assault.

She was also the SARC for the 167th Theater Sustainment Command in Birmingham.

McCrummen is from Enterprise and has two daughters, Cara, 25, and Millie, 18. Cara is a registered nurse at the Enterprise Medical Center, and Millie is a recent graduate of Enterprise High School and will begin college this fall.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
