Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James, left, joined at right by Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark Welsh?, testifies before the House Armed Services Committee on the FY 2015 budget request, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, March 14, 2014.

The issue came to a head in January when Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel summoned top military leaders and ordered a review of the problems. Airmen responsible for missile operations at Minot Air Force Base would have failed their portion of a major inspection in March 2013 but managed a “marginal” rating because their poor marks were blended with the better performance of support staff — like cooks and facilities managers.
