Conduct a narrative review study to identify, evaluate, and summarize pertinent published literature on the influence of U.S. military culture on male victims of military sexual assault (MSA) and military sexual trauma (MST). Various aspects of military culture have been shown to contribute significantly to barriers of reporting, prevention, and social support for male service members who have experienced MST and MSA in the U.S. military forces. A variety of U.S. military cultural factors associated with barriers to reporting MST/MSA among male military service members and veterans were assessed and identified in this narrative review. Overall study findings suggest that increasing research on the impact of military culture and male MST and MSA is imperative in the effort to reduce and prevent sexual violence within the U.S. military armed forces. Various aspects of the U.S. military culture play a significant role in the influence of sexual assault occurrences that take place within U.S. military service units. Supporting evidence suggests that the U.S. military culture impacts the overall severity of barriers to reporting sexual assault and/or trauma among male military service members and veterans.
