Fort Bragg Soldiers Disciplined for Sexual Harassment
Army officials at Fort Bragg, N.C., have disciplined seven of thirteen soldiers accused of sexual misconduct and may punish an eighth. Army investigators determined that the remaining five soldiers will not be punished. The accused harassers worked in the 1st Corps Support Command Consolidated Dining Facility and were charged with making inappropriate sexual comments and fraternization.
Of the seven soldiers disciplined, two were charged under Article 15 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which allows for demotions, reductions in pay, the assignment of extra duty, or the imposition of mild restrictions. The remaining five soldiers received written reprimands. A new manager has been appointed at the dining facility.
