Over 22 US Army servicemembers at Oklahoma’s Fort Sill are being investigated for multiple sexual assault allegations tracing back to a single recruit.

The former recruit, who is reportedly no longer a trainee, claims 22 Soldiers assigned as training cadre committed acts of sexual assault in a “sex ring”- style fashion.

“I heard the term ‘sex ring’ thrown around, which is not one you love to hear,” one Army official said, speaking anonymously.

The unit involved is the 1-78 Field Artillery  Battalion, a training unit at Fort Sill. Several Drill Sergeants have been pulled off the trail in relation to the incident. 

Army Spokeswoman Colonel Cathy Wilkinson denied investigators have obtained a video, contrary to a statement given by the anonymous source.

“Investigators do not have any such video,” Wilkinson said in a statement to The Intercept, refusing to elaborate. 

The incident is being dubbed as “Fort Hood 2.0,” in reference to the Vanessa Guillen murder in recent memory.
