The House Armed Services Committee is hearing testimony in the Air Force sexual assault investigations.

The group, "Protecting Our Defenders" is investigating sexual assaults at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

According to the Air Force,  32 instructors at Lackland allegedly engaged in inappropriate or coercive sexual relationships with 59 recruits and airmen.   

Paula Coughlin, retired from the U.S. Navy said, "We represent over 500,000 veterans and survivors of military sexual assault and some of these people still serve in our military, but all of them have no voice. And we come forward so that we take the appropriate steps to insure that the abuses in our military end."

We're still waiting on the results of a similar investigation at Sheppard.
