When I first heard the news tease of an Air Force scandal, I never thought it would be Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls. Well guess what?I was so wrong! 36 Air Force officers at Malmstrom in Great Falls are at the top of this latest military scandal.
Three dozen nuclear force officers were caught cheating on proficiency tests. Major Laver is the public affairs spokeswoman and she said,
…the cheating happened at Malmstrom Air Force Base and involved 34 officers.
The cheating was reported to have taken place between August and September of 2013. Because of the scandal more than 600 officers at Malmstrom in Great Falls, Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming.
