HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The Navy's inspector general for the Atlantic submarine force is investigating claims that pervasive cheating has tainted exams administered during deployments as part of crews' nuclear training.

The official leading the investigation tells The Associated Press that it began in August. The inquiry is in response to a complaint that originated in Groton, Conn., the home port of an attack submarine that was rocked by an exam-cheating scandal last year. Force Inspector General Pat Urello says it could lead to "corrective action."

Navy officials say the cheating ring aboard the Groton-based USS Memphis was a rare lapse in integrity. But several former submarine officers told the AP for a story in August that it is not uncommon for sailors to receive answer keys or other hints before training exams.
