Aberdeen Commander Reprimanded for Sexual Misconduct

The Army has reprimanded the former commander of the Aberdeen training base in Maryland for sexual harassment and misconduct that occured while he was there.

Major General Robert Shadley plans to contest the action, given that military reprimands have been known to end careers. Twelve staff members at Aberdeen were charged with crimes, ranging from verbal harassment to rape. Shadley's defenders claim he was too high in the chain of command to know about their actions, while some members of Congress assert that senior officials need to be held accountable.

Army leaders also recommend that basic training be extended another week to teach "ethics and values" and combat sexual misconduct at military bases worldwide.
