The U.S. Navy disqualified 151 sailors Wednesday for "lacking proper training" following a review of sexual assault personnel, the same kind of review that resulted in the Army disqualifying hundreds and discharging dozens of soldiers.
Navy spokesman Lt. Cdr. Chris Servello told USA Today the Navy expanded it's initial review — prompted by orders from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel — from 10,000 sex assault coordinators, instructors and recruiters to 20,000.
What they found were many sailors who "didn't receive the proper training or lacked certifications for duties involving sexual assault prevention and response."
