In November 2019, Captain Rebecca Cooper alleged that Col. Lawrence “Larry” Miller had been repeatedly sexually harassing her for the last year. She also said that Miller blamed her for being raped when she reported it to him. An investigation occurred, and Cooper was transferred while Miller, who did not deny the claims, had nothing happen. Cooper soon resigned her commission after learning that Miller was not going to be punished, and the Marine Corps lost a captain with many years left for service. This follows suit with recent complaints that high ranking officials in the Marines are let off the hook, even when it comes to sexual misconduct, over fear of losing them.
