34 USAF Nuke Officers Implicated in Cheating UPDATE: USAF Releases Disciplinary Actions

Thirty-four nuclear missile officers with the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana have been implicated in the largest single cheating scandal in the USAF's nuclear force.

While investigating reports of narcotics possession, Air Force Office of Special Investigations agents stumbled upon the cheating ring. One officer texted answers to a monthly test for missile launch officers to sixteen other officers. At least seventeen other officers admitted to knowing of the cheating and doing nothing. Two of the thirty-four officers are also implicated in the narcotics possession investigation.

It is unknown if any of the officers charged were supervisors - they were ranks between second lieutenant and captain. According to AirForceTimes.com as of Wed. afternoon 100 officers have been retested and three have failed. All 190 officers are expected to be retested by Thursday.
