A new law aims to make a dent in the problems surrounding military child abuse and neglect. The measure, known as "Talia's Law," was named after Talia Williams, a 5-year-old military kid who was beaten to death after being tortured by her Army father and step-mother while stationed in Hawaii. Included in the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, the law makes it mandatory for anyone employed by the Defense Department to report to their base Family Advocacy Program "credible information" or "a reasonable belief" that there has been an incident of child abuse or neglect.
