YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Additional details released this week about a drug ring run by USS Ronald Reagan sailors revealed that the number of servicemembers involved totals 15.

Stars and Stripes reported Tuesday that two Ronald Reagan sailors face charges of possession and distribution of a controlled substance, including LDS and anabolic steroids, in connection with the operation.
