According to The Charleston Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/1XpmxWT ), the Department of Defense inspector general concluded that Brig. Gen. Charles Veit dealt a female lieutenant colonel an unfavorable evaluation “in reprisal for” speaking up.
The inspector’s office says it’s the first time it substantiated reports of reprisal for reporting sexual assault.
The Army Times published the report.
Previous reports say the lieutenant colonel was assaulted in 2006 in Arkansas. She reported it in 2010.
Veit gave the unnamed officer she had accused a positive evaluation and suggested his promotion.
A spokesman confirmed an Army review. The guard says it hasn’t received it yet.
The investigation didn’t find retaliation by the guard’s adjutant general, Maj. Gen. James Hoyer.
