USA Today reports that repeated complaints of "sexually explicit overtures" from Marine Corps Maj. David Cheek went unaddressed by leadership.
"They had every chance to handle this in-house. The leadership chose not to act on it....My perception is that the Marine Corps simply doesn't care."— Sherry Yetter, one of the women who reported the overtures
Why it matters: The military has struggled with how those in power handle sexual assault and harassment allegations from subordinates. Last March, the Marine Corps faced a major scandal surrounding male service members sharing nude photos of their female counterparts in a private Facebook group.
