The Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy addressed policies and procedures recommended by a DOD Independent Review Panel that followed the November 2009 breach.

“This tragedy caused us to take a hard look at ourselves over the last year," said Secretary of the Army John McHugh. “We are committed to ensuring the men and women and their families, who step forward and serve in these very challenging times, can rely upon us to take care of them in every way possible.”

The Army, along with other branches, announced several changes, such as the implementation of the Threat Awareness and Reporting Program that is meant to help emphasis soldier awareness in an effort to detect inside threats.
