SAN ANTONIO — Two more Air Force basic-training instructors in Texas are being investigated for alleged sexual misconduct in cases that could include male victims.

Training command attorney Lt. Col. Mark Hoover on Tuesday declined to release the names of the two latest instructors under review at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.

The http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/military/article/3-men-put-on-the-list-of-sexual-victims-at-4196935.php">San Antonio Express-News reported that a male instructor faces allegations involving two men during boot camp. Hoover said that case involves alleged abusive sexual contact. A female instructor allegedly had sex with a male student in technical training.

That brings to 32 the number of basic-training instructors under investigation at the base. Six trainers have been convicted of misconduct.

The military has changed some procedures and now requires two trainers to oversee each group of recruits.
