Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, Air Force chief of staff, meets each week with a sexual assault prevention team at the Pentagon to combat sexual misconduct and abuse in the service.
The House Armed Services Committee is scheduled Wednesday to open Congress' first open hearing into a massive sex abuse scandal at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio.
He said one of the recommendations is not applicable to the Air Force.
Gen. Rice stressed that most Air Force instructors serve with distinction and that sexual predators must be identified and screened out.
