BROCKPORT, N.Y. ― The two top Army ROTC leaders at a New York state college have been removed from their positions after a physical training session sent 12 students enrolled in the program to local hospitals.

Officials at The College at Brockport say Lt. Col. Christopher D. Bringer and Master Sgt. Mark E. Breyak are no longer running the ROTC program at the State University of New York school located 15 miles west of Rochester.

Brockport officials say they requested the removals after 12 ROTC students sought treatment at three hospitals following strenuous training in early November. College officials say some students were hospitalized for several days.

Details of the training and the nature of the injuries haven’t been released.

The pair has been temporarily removed from the campus pending the outcome of an investigation.
