Staff Sgt. Joshua Hite does not mince words.
"There is definitely a sense of anger and betrayal about all the things that have happened," said Hite. "They abused their power."
Hite was speaking about the 33 instructors that have been investigated so far for varying degrees of sexual assault. He knows many of them personally, having been an instructor on base for several years now.
"It was almost hard to believe that anyone would do that at first," said Hite. "It was just something new everyday -- you'd wake up and see someone else on the news."
But he was quick to point out that their actions are not what the unit stands for.
"The majority of people here are here for the right reasons," said Hite. "It's not about the power, it's about the awesome responsibility of training the finest airmen in the world."
Part of being the greatest air force in the world, however, is admitting to mistakes and fixing them, said Hite.
Multiple changes have been put into effect since the scandals began.
Trainees are no longer allowed to be alone with an instructor. In fact, they're never alone at all, now required to be with a "wingman," or another trainee of the same sex at all times.
Extra security cameras have been installed, and more officers have been added to each flight to add additional oversight to instructors.
For Hite, the changes were a struggle at first, given that he had done nothing wrong.
"But when you step back and look at it, there was not other choice," said Hite. "There were things that needed to be fixed and I think that all the instructors understand that and are moving forward."
