  •  Actually, as a female soldier I saw exactly what (20+ / 0-)

    Mannie is talking about.  It was imperative that the male soldiers never be alone with a female soldier.  I often acted as the witnessing party in order to forestall exactly this sort of behavior.  For some it was "good fun," or hazing but for others on some level they felt that if they had any sort of physical relationship with anyone in authority it gave them the cover of authority and a lever to power.

    I went through basic at Fort Jackson, and it sounds like it has not changed much since I was there in 1982 and even back then there was zero tolerance for fraternization and a strict rule of never being alone with a female soldier if you were male.  I saw two instructors brought up on charges for disregarding the rules.
