Military ‘mentors’ quit over disclosure rules
Tom Vanden Brook ― USA TODAY

Seven retired admirals and generals hired by the military as consultants will end their advisory roles rather than comply with new regulations requiring them to divulge outside income to avoid a conflict of interest.

The former officers are among 158 Pentagon retirees known as “senior mentors” who have been identified in USA TODAY stories as getting as much as $440 an hour to offer advice on war plans and weapons systems.

A USA TODAY investigation found that 80% of the mentors had financial ties to defense contractors that they were not required to reveal to the public.
