Ten enlisted Navy SEALs are being discharged from the service for testing positive for cocaine or methamphetamine’s, USNI News reports.
“During a number of command drug tests from March to April 2018, 11 service members from East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare units tested positive for controlled substances,” Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence said in a statement.
“We have a zero-tolerance policy for the use of illicit drugs and as such these individuals will be held accountable for their actions. We are confident in our drug testing procedures and will continue to impress on all members of the command that illicit drugs are incompatible with the SEAL ethos and Naval service.”
The failure of the drug tests has sparked a Naval Special Warfare Command investigation into the circumstances around the failures.
