SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A woman is taking command of an Air Force basic training unit at a Texas base embroiled in a sex scandal.

Col. Deborah Liddick on Friday assumes command of the 737th Training Group, bringing a distinctly new face of authority to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Six male instructors have been charged with crimes ranging from rape to adultery. Other instructors are still under investigation.

Dozens of female recruits have alleged they were sexually assaulted or harassed by male instructors within the past year at Lackland. About one in five recruits at Lackland are women, while most instructors are men.

Lackland is where every new American airman reports for basic training, graduating about 35,000 each year.

Liddick succeeds Col. Glenn Palmer, who was removed last month.
