    House cleaning and rebuilding is likely the only choice here.

    That would require an outside civilian organization that is trained in handling sexual assault crimes and victims.  This organization would have to be empowered to go after the assailants and they must not have any career advancement investment in being promoted or rewarded for service through the military chain of command.

    The buddy system within the military culture is a sham both in the sense that there is an epidemic of these "buddies" victimizing each other and the sense that these "buddies" are protecting those people who victimize others.  The Chain of Command within the military has lost any and all credibility that they ever had.
