Friday President Obama addressed the military’s problem with sex crimes.

The President spoke to newly commissioned officers at the Naval Academy.

Recently, outrage has been growing because the number of sexual assaults in the military has increased.

Some top officers are under fire for not doing anything to stop the abuse.

At least two officers who are supposed to prevent sex crimes are being investigated.
