Pentagon investigating Army members for alleged misbehavior during Trump's trip to Asia.
  Wednesday 22 November, 2017
Pentagon investigating Army members for alleged misbehavior during Trump\'s trip to Asia.

The Pentagon says it is investigating allegations of misbehavior by multiple service members during President Trump's 12-day trip to Asia earlier this month.

Citing unnamed officials, The Washington Post reports that three Army servicemen, who work for the White House Communications Agency (WHCA), are being investigated after allegedly breaking curfew and making improper contact with women during Trump's stop in Vietnam.

The three service members, who help the WHCA ensure that the president and other officials have secure communication channels, could lose their security clearances and face other disciplinary actions, The Associated Press reports.

"We are aware of the incident and it is currently under investigation," Defense Department spokesman Mark Wright told USA TODAY.

The alleged incident comes months after four military personnel on Vice President Pence's communication team were reportedly reassigned stemming from similar allegations of misbehavior during a trip to Panama.

According to NBC News, the military detail assigned to Pence's team were caught on video bringing women back to their hotel without registering them into the building. Once the allegations surfaced, the military members were brought back to the U.S. and removed from the White House details, NBC News reported.
