Files allege misconduct among recruitment officers

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Investigative files show years of alleged sexual and other misconduct among officers within the Alaska Army National Guard’s Recruiting and Retention Battalion.

The files, leaked to the Alaska Dispatch News, were prepared between 2010 and 2014.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports the files describe a unit in which officers cheated on their wives, bullied civilians, drank to excess and made demeaning comments about women, including fellow soldiers.

Most of the leaked files contain portions of the full investigations and do not provide defense statements from the officers or the final results of the investigations.

Gov. Sean Parnell has been criticized for not acting quickly enough in response to allegations of misconduct within the Guard. News organizations and others have requested information on the administration’s response and Guard records.
