VTDigger Investigates Alleged Abuses Of Power Within Vermont National Guard

Nov 30, 2018

Allegations of misconduct, abuse of power and a culture of impunity at the Vermont National Guard. Interviews with more than two dozen guardsmen alleging harassment of women and a toxic "good-old-boys" network. And alleged outrageous behavior among pilots and others high within the Guard ranging from the misuse of fighter jets to conduct that may have imperiled a mission in Africa.

These are among the findings from of a six-month investigation by VTDigger into the Vermont National Guard. 

VTDigger investigative reporter Jasper Craven joins Vermont Edition to discuss his reporting, his sources for his wide-ranging reporting and the Guard's response to the allegations.
