Summary:

Lackland Air Force Base, which was slated to train about 36,000 recruits in 2012, removed 35 instructors from positions of authority (about eight percent of the base’s instructors), including four who have been confirmed as having been charged with sexual misconduct.

Notes:

The San Antonio Express-News used FOIA to obtain the number of removals (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/military/article/Number-of-instructors-ousted-at-Lackland-is-3626310.php). Military officials declined to identify the reasons for each dismissal, but one source noted that a majority were removed for non-sexual-misconduct reasons.
