Leadership problem - Integrity lacking

Seventeen senior enlisted sailors (E-7 or above) and one junior officer (O1 to O3) in the reactor department of the aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower were disciplined in connection with senior-level cheating on a written nuclear exam while underway late last year, according to several Navy sources familiar with the matter.

“Administrative and/or disciplinary actions were taken” against the 18 crew mem­bers “associated with the compro­mise.” Of those, 11 were adminis­tratively transferred out of the re­actor department either to other ships, other commands or else­where on the Eisenhower.
