Air Force relieves commander over sex scandal
Col. Glenn Palmer has overseen basic training for all new Air Force recruits as commander of basic training at the 737th training group at the Texas base. Officials familiar with the decision said Friday that Palmer has been relieved from those duties. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made public.
More than a dozen military instructors at Lackland have been investigated or charged with sexually assaulting recruits. Investigators say at more than three dozen female trainees were victimized.
