From the opening statement of Jackie Speier: "This hearing will now discuss on a hybrid level the report submitted by the committee entitled 'The Findings and Recommendations of the Fort Hood Independent Review Committee.' Our focus today are the 9 findings and the 70 [...] review committee recommendations after this extensive investigation into whether the command climate and culture at Fort Hood reflects the Army's values, including respect, inclusiveness, a workplace free from sexual harassment, and a commitment to diversity. Despite red flags popping up for years, leaders ignored them, carried on, and [...] 'business as usual, causing female soldiers, particularly in the combat brigades, to slip into survival mode, vulnerable and preyed upon, but fearful to report and be ostracized and revictimized,' [...] that, a statement from the committee's report." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Chris Swecker, Jonathan Harmon, Carrie Ricci, Queta Rodriguez, and Jack White.
