The fact that one woman's claims could not be substantiated does not mean it did not happen and what about the other woman? Were hers substantiated? I think it is safe to say that this guy should be investigated more.
Senior Army official in inspector general's office cited for sexually harassing women. A senior civilian in the Army Inspector General's office sexually harassed subordinate employees, including forcing a kiss on one and touching another employee's buttocks, made racially-charged comments and talked about the "Belly fat" of other women in the office, according to a Pentagon report released Wednesday that called for him to be disciplined. Joseph Guzowski, the principal director for the Army Inspector for Inspection, the Army's internal watchdog, denied all the allegations, according to the report by the Defense Department's inspector general. But the report sides with the four women who complained about his boorish behavior. Ref. USAToday.
Commanding officers should be seeing their juniors as their slaves. They are ready treat the guys like that and the woman the same PLUS they have to be sexuallized too that's so bad on our military.

Critics complain of cover-up as Pentagon delays release of report that ranks bases by risk of sexual assault. The Pentagon is delaying release of a report by the nonpartisan RAND Corp. That rates the risk of sexual assault for troops by military base. The report relied on surveys of troops and data from 2014 that have underpinned several previous reports from RAND. It was supposed to have been released months ago. Military officials say the report is being delayed over concerns about its methodology, while advocates for troops subjected to sexual assault say the Pentagon wants to kill the report because officials do not like its conclusions. Ref. USAToday.
Somehow I do not find this surprising that the Pentagon would want this report to go away. The Pentagon does not like to get bad news and if they can keep this from being published they would be very happy. But as they continue to squash the report there are women in the military who have to deal with sexual misconduct all the way up to rape. I think the military needs to get a better handle on what is going on in the ranks.
Sexual trauma claims by veterans improperly denied by VA, report shows. The Department of Veterans Affairs improperly denied hundreds of military sexual trauma claims in recent years, leaving potentially thousands of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder without benefits, a VA inspector general investigation found. Last year alone, the investigation found the agency mishandled as many as 1,300 sexual trauma claims. Some 12,000 veterans file for sexual trauma-related PTSD benefits each year. The inspector general found the VA failed to order required medical exams in more than half the cases, didn’t obtain necessary records to back up the claims in hundreds of cases or denied claims despite contradictory evidence.

Sexual assault spikes nearly 50 percent at military academies; strategies from the Pentagon fail to stem crisis. The number of students reporting unwanted sexual contact totaled 747 during the 2017-18 academic year, compared with 507 in 2015-16, according to anonymous surveys of cadets and midshipmen. Unwanted sexual contact ranges from groping to rape. Source 8f.
