Victim Advocates:

The VA provides essential support, liaison services and care to victims of sexual assault. 

The VA ensures victims continue to receive the necessary care and support until the victim states or SARC determines that support is no longer needed. 

The Air Force relies on volunteers to fill this critical function.
