But that's the thing, I don't think it's less prevalent in other militaries. You hear it more from the US because the US military is so massive and troops are actually deployed all over the world. The same simply isn't true for most other military forces.
But if you look at any wars, whether you take any of the modern conflicts or go back many hundreds of years, militaries having rape issues is a constant. Sure, most often it's against civilians, but that's simply a matter of opportunity.
