Original Message To tackle the ever-present problem of sexual assault in the U.S. military, Fort Bragg is hosting an "escape room"-style event this week during which a soldier will be chained to a chair.

This seems ... ill-advised.

Army Sgt. 1st Class Ashley Savage, spokesperson for the16th Military Police Brigade, told Task & Purpose that the escape room is a "training event," meant to bring soldiers together to "ensure important elements of the SHARP [Sexual Harassment Assault Response Prevention] program are understood."

In the conference room where the escape room plays out, a soldier is chained to a chair with four locks. To unlock the chains, the soldier's team members must answer a series of questions regarding SHARP.

For example, Savage said, the on-post SHARP hotline number would unlock one of the locks.

"Think of it as a puzzle room," Savage told Task & Purpose. "And with that, gaining resources of different types of reporting ... other information a soldier can use if a sexual assault were to happen, so they can be empowered to know how and when to report."

Savage said she spoke to the first team of soldiers to do the escape room on Monday morning, who told her it was "good training because it made them get into the regulations and understand things" better.

While using an escape room to engage soldiers on SHARP seems well-intentioned, the idea of chaining someone to a chair in an exercise revolving around sexual assault is a questionable one. But as Army Times reported, the idea is for soldiers to "help their buddy escape the chains of sexual harassment and assault."

So there's that, I guess.
