The first woman to head the Army's Drill Sergeant School at Fort Jackson has filed suit against the government, contending she was the target of racial and sexual discrimination.
COLUMBIA, S.C. | The first woman to command the Army's drill sergeant training took legal action Monday to reclaim her job, saying she was improperly suspended last year because of sexism and racism and demanding that two of her superiors be investigated for abuse of their authority.
The Army has suspended the first woman to lead its drill sergeant school while it investigates an undisclosed personnel matter, the service said Thursday.
In her suit, King said three of her former Army colleagues undermined her authority and targeted her for removal from her job because she was black and female.
