SAN ANTONIO - The U.S. Air Force has revealed it disciplined senior officers at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland for a number of failings that include not properly informing superiors as the worst sex scandal in Air Force history played out.
The Air Education and Training Command, responding to questions from the San Antonio Express-News, acknowledged that five former commanders and a senior noncommissioned officer have been punished. The training command declined to identify them. Of the five commanders, one was a wing commander, another a group commander and three were squadron commanders.
The scandal has seen more than 30 basic training instructors at Lackland investigated for misconduct involving recruits and technical school trainees. A military trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday for Staff Sgt. Emily Allen, the only woman to face charges.
