According to an NBC News report, an Army battalion commander at the Space and Missile Defense Command at Fort Greely, Alaska, is under investigation for allegedly "condoning" adultery and creating an "open season" climate when it comes to sexual activity among the troops, military and defense officials tell NBC News.
According to one military official, "It's as if that was the only thing to do" at the remote Alaska base.
As of now, there appear to be no allegations of sexual assault involved in the investigation. The sources report there are allegations that an officer or officers had sexual relations with female soldiers under their command.
Consensual relations with a subordinate would still be a violation of regulations.
