Members of the House Armed Services Committee wrapped up a visit to Lackland Air Force Base this afternoon.
The congressional delegation met with commanders to find out how inappropriate relations were able to develop between istructors and trainees.
More than 40 female trainees say they had inappropriate relationships with instructors, or were sexually harassed or raped.
U.S. Rep. Susan Davis, (D) California, said, "One of the things we repeatedly heard was sometimes people do not report. Sometimes the victims do not report these crimes and yet we need to be able to go after, within a situation and make sure people feel safe."
Last month, the Air Force put a female commander over the training wing at Lackland.
Five instructors have been convicted and nearly a dozen more are under investigation.
2 North Texas men charged with neglecting pony
June 18, 2013 02:54 GMT
SPRINGTOWN, Texas (AP) -- Two North Texas men are facing animal cruelty charges for allegedly neglecting a Shetland pony that was malnourished, suffering from an infected wound and living in squalid conditions.
The owner of the pony, Jesse Ray Cross, and the pony's caretaker, Franky Lynn Hatcher-Cross, are free on bond after being arrested Saturday on charges of cruelty to livestock animals.
The pony was found in Springtown, located about 60 miles northwest of Dallas. Investigators say the pony was severely underweight and had no food or clean water nearby.
Veterinarian staff treating the pony say they will have to wait for its infection to improve before they can operate.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler says he will care for the animal and pay for its treatment. He has renamed the pony Achilles.
