Air Force Investigating 12 Instructors in Sex Misconduct Probe

The U.S. Air Force is investigating 12 male military training instructors for alleged sexual misconduct with female cadets, the head of the Air Force Air Education and Training Command said today.

General Edward Rice said the Air Force has identified 31 victims, all of whom had been trained at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. He said nine of the 12 instructors under investigation were from the 331st training squadron at Lackland.

The commander of that squadron was relieved of his duty this month, Rice said.
