Three U.S. Army noncommissioned officers who belonged to the White House Communications Agency have been removed from their positions and are being investigated for allegedly breaking curfew and making improper contact with foreign women during President Donald Trump's stop in Vietnam, The Washington Post reports.

"We are aware of the incident, and it is currently under investigation,” Department of Defense spokesman Mark Wright told the Post.

The WHCA is a specialized military unit that provides "vital information services and communications support to the president and his staff," according to the US Defense Information Systems Agency.

The staffers accompanied the president on his 12-day tour of Asia earlier this month.

Similar allegations of misconduct were made against two soldiers and two Airmen on Vice President Mike Pence's communication team during a trip to Panama in August. They were reportedly caught on camera bringing women back to their hotel without registering them.

The soldiers were brought back to the U.S. and removed from the White House detail.
