WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Army announced Tuesday that two more drill sergeants at the Aberdeen Proving Ground have been charged with sexual misconduct and harassment. No rape charges were filed.

Staff Sgt. Wayne Gamble, 36, was charged with adultery, assault, sodomy, desertion, indecent acts and indecent language involving 14 female soldiers. Sgt. 1st Class Ronald Moffet, 30, was charged with cruelty and maltreatment, adultery, indecent assault and indecent language involving four female soldiers.

The number of instructors to be charged at Aberdeen now stands at 10. All are African American, which has prompted the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus to raise questions about whether race might be a factor in the prosecutions.
