A new report lays out problems at Fort Hood, which has been plagued by sexual assault, harassment, and soldier deaths. Christopher Swecker, who led an independent review committee, told Congress on Tuesday that the post relied heavily on novice agents who lacked the experience to tackle tough cases such as murders.
Fort Hood was put in the spotlight after last year’s death of 20-year-old Specialist Vanessa Guillen. Her family said she had been sexually harassed, but was too afraid to speak up. The report also laid out a serious drug problem at the base.
