The US Army is assembling a panel of four civilian consultants to review the "command climate and culture" at Fort Hood in Texas, in the wake of the killing of Spc. Vanessa Guillen , Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy announced Friday.

"So in coordination with the family, who agreed to allow us to do this, we are going to dedicate a gate that has her name on it — that has her picture — and you can come learn just a little about Vanessa. But mostly it's so [in] two, three, four years we haven't forgotten what this is all about, what this moment is all about in our history," he said.

The official Facebook page fighting for justice for the late soldier says Guillén's family was not involved with the gate's design.

Guillén's younger sister, Lupe Guillén, said at the family's news conference that her mother decided not to attend because the anniversary of Guillén's death was approaching.

"They should have cared when she was alive — not until now," she said, holding back tears.

She said the positive side of the gate is that it reminds people about what happened a year ago and encourages victims of sexual violence not to stay in silence but to report it, which she said her sister could not do.

Guillén was last seen April 22 last year at Fort Hood, in Killeen. Across the country, her family, public officials and celebrities joined in calling for #JusticeForVanessaGuillen. Her remains were found in June. In early July, as police moved in to arrest Spc. Aaron Robinson, 20, in connection with her disappearance, he shot and killed himself, authorities said.

Shortly afterward, a woman identified as Robinson’s girlfriend was arrested on federal charges of tampering with evidence, accused of helping Robinson dispose of Guillén's body. She has pleaded not guilty, and her attorney filed a motion last month to suppress her statements. A hearing is set for April 27.

When he visited the base in August, Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, who said Fort Hood had one of the highest crime rates in the Army, said Guillén’s death was a turning point in how the Army handles sexual assaults and harassment.

In December, McCarthy said 14 leaders at the base were fired or suspended based on an independent review that found that there was a "permissive environment for sexual assault and sexual harassment." Among those disciplined was Maj. Gen. Scott L. Efflandt, the acting Fort Hood commander at the time of Guillén’s death.

Lupe Guillén said at the family's news conference that the actions against the 14 leaders were not justice.

"We must investigate the chain of command and her leadership, because it's impossible no one knew anything about the sexual harassment happening to her," she said.

Texas lawmakers will discuss legislation filed in Guillén's honor at a news conference Tuesday. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., will introduce the I Am Vanessa Guillen Act on Thursday on Capitol Hill, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will speak in support.

Guillén's family and supporters have also created #IAmVanessaGuillen Week with in-person and virtual events. On Thursday, the anniversary of the night she disappeared, cities across the country will hold vigils.
