The news about scandals in payments in recruiting for the National Guard and cheating allegations by trainers at a school for naval nuclear reactor operators is disturbing to all Americans, and particularly to military veterans. For service members to cheat in any way is hurtful to those veterans who served honorably and in an honest manner.

The U.S. Senate is investigating, along with the Army, the National Guard recruiting program under which millions of dollars in unlawful payments were made. The Navy is investigating the cheating allegation against about one-fifth of the trainers at the nuclear reactor school. There also is a cheating probe under way in the Air Force about a monthly test of proficiency in handling emergency war orders for potential launch of nuclear missiles.
