An unsettling number of admirals and generals have been fired in recent years for misconduct.
That trend continues. Under media pressure, the Pentagon acknowledged that three more generals had been punished in separate incidents.

All are Army generals.
Military sexual assaults continue to plague the ranks and remain woefully under-reported.
Last year 3,000 sexual assault cases were filed, but by the Pentagon’s own estimate there were 19,000 incidents.
According to decade of Department of Veterans Affairs statistics: 1 in 5 women and 1 in 100 men report being sexually assaulted.
If Pentagon budget cuts didn’t grab the attention of states and military communities, this certainly will: Base Realignment and Closure is looming.
Reports are now swirling that the White House will call for two rounds of base closures in the coming years
