MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The head of the Wisconsin National Guard said Monday that he intends to implement all recommendations made following an investigation into multiple reports of sexual assault and harassment.
Major General Don Dunbar was briefed Saturday on the probe by the National Guard Bureau’s Office of Complex Investigations.

The Guard has been shaken by recent allegations of officers brushing off sexual assault complaints and retaliating against victims for reporting incidents. Gov. Tony Evers and U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin requested the federal investigation, the results of which were presented to Dunbar on Saturday. Evers got the report Nov. 25.
The allegations came to light in November 2018 when Master Sgt. Jay Ellis told Baldwin about half a dozen incidents of sexual assault or harassment within his 115th Fighter Wing security squadron that officers had done little to address. Ellis wrote in a letter to Baldwin that the culture in his unit treats sexual misconduct as “no big deal.”
