Now showing: March 17 edition of Air Force Television News

SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- The growing scandal of current and former female Air Force Academy cadets accusing their male counterparts of rape or sexual assault headlines the latest edition of Air Force Television News.

Staff Sgt. Kevin Dennison reports on the charges by the female cadets and what Air Force senior leaders and academy officials are doing to correct the problem.

The program also contains two stories on how the Air Force is contributing to Afghanistan and Southwest Asia operations. Staff Sgt. Leigh Bellinger flies on a C-17 Globemaster III flight from Charleston Air Force Base, S.C., to Rhein-Main Air Base, Germany, to show Air Mobility Command's airlift support for both areas.

Meanwhile, Tech. Sgt. Angie Pianga is in Florida witnessing first-hand the training under battlefield conditions given to Air Force weather forecasters.

The state of major commands for this program focuses on Air Force Materiel Command. Produced by Staff Sgt. Bill Scherer, the in-depth examination of AFMC illustrates how the command is involved in virtually every aspect of the Air Force mission.

Tech. Sgt. Paul Firman goes to McGuire AFB, N.J., to report on one of two laboratories responsible for supplying blood to all branches of the military worldwide.

Senior Airman Israel Aviles updates the Operation Northern Watch mission at Incirlik AB, Turkey.

Staff Sgt. Marty Rush spends a weekend in Las Vegas for the third NASCAR race of the season. He talks to the new driver for the Air Force-sponsored Motorcraft entry, Ricky Rudd.

And Tech. Sgt. Pachari Lutke talks to the widow of an Air Force pararscueman who says her late husband's dedication to the service was the inspiration for her deciding to chose the Air Force as a career.
