Sailors of the US Navy cheated on passing tests for aptitude

18

Naval seamen from the training center in South Carolina, who have been trained in working with nuclear reactors on aircraft carriers and submarines, are suspected of being tricked into taking written tests. This was told by the admirals of the US Navy at a meeting with journalists at the Pentagon. In this regard, US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered an independent study of the situation inside the American strategic nuclear forces.


Navy Chief of Staff Admiral Jonathan Grinert and Chief naval nuclear power plant use programs, Admiral John Richardson reported that seafarers trained to service nuclear reactors on aircraft carriers and submarines cheated while passing written tests for professional suitability, ITAR-TASS reports. About 20 people were suspected.

According to the admirals, it became known about possible violations from one of the servicemen of the training center in Charleston (South Carolina), who wrote a report to the command. He said that the senior sailors who were preparing to get the position of instructor for training young colleagues to work in nuclear

reactors, cheated on examinations bosses. It is also reported that the suspects had access to classified information, but not to the nuclear arms. In total, 150 instructors are trained at the training center.

“I am more than disappointed,” admitted Admiral Grinert. “We expect more from our sailors, especially from senior sailors.”

Earlier, a similar scandal - and even larger scale - erupted in the US Air Force, which subordinate bases with intercontinental ballistic missiles Minuteman-3. Officers serving there also were convicted of fraud during occupational fitness checks. In addition, 11 officers used “soft drugs for entertainment purposes” at six air bases. Three of them carried combat duty at bases in the states of Wyoming and Montana, where missiles are stationed.

Under the direction of Defense Minister Chuck Hagel, the commanders of the Air Force and Navy responsible for the “nuclear triad” - land-based ICBMs, submarine missiles and strategic bombers - will have to develop an action plan aimed at finding and eliminating violations.

      recourse But as I remember now, I didn’t cheat ... I honestly handed over everything lol ... These learned psychologists themselves should be planted and forced to fill out a book with a hundred pages in an hour ... As I remember now, the question for a 20-year-old lieutenant is How tall is a 6-year-old child. 90 cm, 1 m, 1 m10 cm ...
      So there is no scandal. As they ask, they answer ..... Americans laughing

        Joke on the topic.
        Student, vocational school student and cadet discuss the difficulties of study.
        Student: Here we have it. They will ask you a question: What is the current measured? And there are three possible answers: in amperes, in ohms, in volts. And sit, choose.
        PTUshnik: And they will ask us: Isn't the current measured in amperes? And options: yes, no, I don’t know.
        Cadet: That's what. Here we have: Current is measured in amperes. And options: yes, there are, so for sure. And sit, choose the right one. laughing

        laughing The professor of history wants to overwhelm the student. And asks the question:
        -When did the Great Patriotic War begin? -1941
        -What were the losses during the war The USSR? -Over 20 million people.
        -Now, surname start listing the dead people.

        Unsurprisingly, there will always be someone who is interested in passing the Halyava exam. Americans are no exception.

    Here it must be borne in mind that a simple talented boy in USA cannot become an officer. For admission to a military university, a recommendation from a senator or congressman is required. Correspondingly, cadet officers are recruited (with very rare exceptions) from a narrow circle of the elite, who even study at schools unusual and also study unusual, i.e. no way. Hence the result.

      In Russia, Stepan Aleksandrovich Remezkov is very rare. Here is his VK page. Since 2005, he studied at elite private schools in Great Britain: Malvern College, Fettes College, CATS Canterbury College, and in 2009 he moved to the United States, where he enters a very specific institution: Valley Forge Military College
      Children of wealthy American patriots study at the college, about half of which then become US Army officers. Well, after college, Stepan goes to a very expensive private Hofstra University in New York, where he studies while his dad, the deputy head of the State Duma Legislation Committee, submits laws to ban the adoption of Russian orphans by American families and foreign agents, occasionally visiting his son in USA

    Something they often already have problems with officers serving in nuclear weapons. This is not the first swallow. An inadequate and unprepared guy at the controls is inspiring something. It seems that the nation of the mattresses will generally be inadequate in the near future. So, there is hope on our air defense. Fuck knows what these addicts have in mind.

    The article raises the problem: "don't go far." What do we have? Perfect selection? In the modern world, this is the norm of guys, even a human property. This problem is of a global nature. How to say: "God created us with palms facing him." So much for your bookmark.
