Infantry drill sergeants suspended after sexual assault allegations from female recruits

The Army cannot confirm how many are under investigation

A group of Fort Benning, Georgia, drill sergeants has been suspended amid an investigation into multiple sexual assault allegations, a Fort Benning spokesman confirmed to Army Times on Wednesday.

What started out as a single report from one trainee has ballooned, according to a release from the Maneuver Center of Excellence. The story was first reported by U.S. Army W.T.F.! Moments on Tuesday  night.

"Initial review of this incident revealed indications of additional allegations of sexual misconduct involving trainees and drill sergeants,” the release said.
