An Army doctor publicly rejected a promotion to major, saying the military had failed to respond properly to charges that his 3-year-old daughter and other children were sexually abused at a West Point day care center. Capt. Walter Grote, a 33-year-old internist, said he was refusing his promotion in an effort “to fight for the human rights of all children.” A federal grand jury has been reviewing allegations that 11 children were sexually or physically abused at the child care facility at the nation’s oldest military academy.
