— NPR's Pentagon Correspondent Martha Raddatz reports that the Army's top enlisted man faces a court martial on 20 counts of sexual misconduct. Sergeant Major Gene McKinney denies the charges and says he plans to resume his duties after he is found not guilty. No date has been set for the court martial. During a lengthy preliminary trial, six servicewomen listed the lurid details of McKinney's alleged sexual advances. McKinney's lawyer says the Army unfairly singled his client out, and is trying to make an example of him.
