By By MG (Ret) Robert D. Shadley - Class of 1986


Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, 1996: The U.S. Army's most extensive sexual abuse scandal on record is uncovered by Major General Robert Shadley.

Known as GAM, or Game ala Military, an entire network of senior male instructors is in competition to sexually assault and exploit the young female trainees in their charge. Immersed in a battle unlike anything he d been trained to fight, Shadley must unravel the game, bring the players to justice, and get help for a record number of victims.

Now retired, General Shadley continues to advocate for the estimated 19,000 military service members who are sexually assaulted each year. In this gripping story, he sheds light on a problem that s still sadly far from being solved, and provides lessons in real leadership through crisis.
