The latest Air Force sexual assault case might have stayed "cold" forever had it not been for a deeper investigation into older, unreported cases. An Article 32 hearing was presented Monday at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland on new cases stemming from the 1990s.  

The 34 sexual misconduct cases that have played out in Lackland courtrooms for the past two to three years prompted investigators to look back 10 years to see if other cases remained unreported.

A 19 year old trainee from Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland died Thursday after training exercises, a spokesperson told TPR this weekend.

Terron Moore, a native of Indiana, collapsed following a run, said Collen McGee Saturday. Initial emails regarding the incident were blocked by a technical problem. McGee emphasized that the Air Force strives to be transparent in news, good or bad, and worked on Saturday to relay the message about the passing of the trainee.

Bat experts have determined a bat colony has established itself inside the walls of a 45-year-old dorm building at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. 

More than 200 Lackland recruits are on a rabies vaccine regimen after several bats were discovered in their dorm a couple of weeks ago. But the building is huge, and although the dorms were secured and entrances sealed off, it took experts a longer time to find the bat colony that was discovered over the weekend.
