More Coasties face discipline over drugs

Posted: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 10:10 am

The Coast Guard disciplined 16 service members, most of whom were assigned to various Coast Guard units in Kodiak, for wrongful use of controlled substances and other related misconduct at nonjudicial punishment proceedings on Thursday and Friday.

The proceedings are a result of an internal investigation into alleged illicit drug activity among service members. The Coast Guard learned of allegations in the fall of 2018 and referred the matter to the Coast Guard Investigative Service. A total of 31 service members have faced some kind of punishment as a result of the investigation so far; the investigation remains ongoing.
