Army Sergeant Testifies Sex Ring Targeted Female Trainees

An Army drill sergeant, who has been accused of sexual misconduct and who testified that he belonged to a sex ring which targeted female trainees, has pleaded guilty to reduced charges. Staff Sergeant Wayne Gamble, stationed at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, has pleaded guilty to adultery, violating rules of socializing, engaging in sex with trainees, one count of sodomy, and one count of being absent without leave. The charges could end his 18-year military career. Testifying in trials against other Aberdeen drill sergeants, Gamble admitted that he and five other male trainers participated in a secret sex ring the called “the game.” The so-called game involved selecting new female trainees, having sex with them and then sharing their names with the other sergeants.
