The White House has transferred three military service members out of their West Wing roles after they allegedly had inappropriate contact with women during President Donald Trump’s recent trip to Vietnam, according to officials at the White House.

The Department of Defense (DOD) is investigating three noncommissioned Army officers who allegedly broke curfew and met with foreign women during the 12-day, five-country visit to Asia, the Washington Post reports.

The three men were working with the White House Communications Agency, which assists the president, vice president and Secret Service to set up secure communications while traveling.

Military officials confirmed that the DOD was investigating the men who, if charged, could face a court martial. “We are aware of the incident, and it is currently under investigation,” Mark Wright, spokesman for the DOD, told WaPo.

Several members of the White House Communications Agency were removed from their positions in August after allegedly inviting women into to a secure area without clearing them through security during Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to Panama.

Those four men, two from the Army and two from the Air Force, were reassigned from their White House positions pending the investigation.
