Three fired over Nazi salute photo with West Virginia corrections employees

Three people have been fired after a photo captured dozens of West Virginia corrections trainees making a Nazi salute in their uniforms, officials said Friday.

The two academy trainers and a cadet were not identified in a statement from the state’s Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety. Thirty-four people remain suspended without pay amid the investigation by the department and its Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

“We are committed to a full and complete investigation that we will present to Governor Justice and to the public once it is finished,” department Secretary Jeff Sandy said in a statement.
