The US Air Force is at the centre of a sex scandal after 31 female trainees were identified as victims of sexual misconduct and harassment, including rape. Sexual abuse allegedly took place at the hands of a senior group of old instructors at the Lackland Air Base, the largest base of the country. Investigations of allegations related to sexual misconduct began in October last year when a female came forward complaining that her friend had been a victim of sexual misconduct while she was at the base. When the scope of investigations widened in November, it became clear that the problem was far more serious than to what was being assumed.
