Proof lies on him who asserts, not on him who denies. The concept is that one is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of what the law says about reasonable doubt, there is an unwritten presumption within the ranks of the military that if you are charged with sexual assault, then you are guilty.

A Brief History of Fort Bliss

Located in El Paso, Texas, Fort Bliss enjoys a unique position among army bases across the U.S. The main post of Fort Bliss is based in the metropolitan El Paso city although almost all of the training grounds and base camps are in New Mexico. Another interesting feature about Fort Bliss is that a significant proportion of the housing for military personnel is located off-base well within the neighboring community.

Fort Bliss was established at the end of the Mexican War when a new need arose- to defend the new border and to protect settlers and migrants from Indian attacks. The base also served the purpose of providing a means to survey the terrain for a new transcontinental railroad here. The base was officially set up in September 1848, briefly closed subsequently and reopened in 1854 with the new name- Fort Bliss. It was here that thousands of U.S. soldiers received their training during the Cold War.
