US soldiers removed from W. House detail amid probe: report

Officials familiar with the situation told the Post that the three non-commissioned officers allegedly broke a curfew during Trump's Vietnam visit.

The service members had been working for the White House Communications Agency, a specialized military unit that helps provide top officials with secure communications, the Post said.

The Post said that four troops from the same White House team faced allegations around accompanying women, stemming from a trip to Panama in August with Vice President Mike Pence.

In another incident in 2012, Secret Service agents in Cartagena, Colombia were caught soliciting prostitutes.
