(KGTV) - Ten Navy SEALS and a sailor are being discharged after testing positive for cocaine or methamphetamines, USNI News reported Friday.
The sailors failed a series of drug screenings in March and April, a spokesperson said. It’s unclear if the cases were related.
The troops were assigned to East Coast Naval Special Warfare Units.
“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,” Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence said in a statement to USNI News.
