Based on a seven-month investigation that included interviews with dozens of victims in Texas and across the country, Twice Betrayed exposed a troubling pattern of forced discharges of victims who reported sexual assaults, while commanders protected the offenders. The newspaper decided to look deeper into assaults after months of coverage of a sex scandal at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland that involved dozens of assaults on recruits by their training instructors. The Air Force has since changed its basic training procedures in San Antonio, and Congress is considering measures to change military prosecutions. Our digital presentation includes stories, slideshows, video and interactives.
