' IG report is in. The Defense Department inspector general has found that maintenance and readiness records were falsified at the Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey training squadron in New River, N.C. The IG found, however, that the falsifications had no connection to two V-22 crashes that killed a total of 33 Marines. Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James L. Jones requested the independent review after allegations surfaced that Marines assigned to the squadron had been told to falsify readiness records to cover up maintenance problems.
