discharged Vice Pres-
ident Joe Biden s son,
Hunter, this year
after he tested posi-
tive for cocaine, US
The discharge of
Biden, a 44-year-old
lawyer and managing
partner at an invest-
ment firm, was first
reported by the Wall
Street Journal on
Thursday. He con-
firmed the report in a
statement to CNN.
"It was the honour
of my life to serve in
the US Navy, and I
deeply regret and am
embarrassed that my
actions led to my
charge. I respect the
Navy s decision. With the love and support of my
family, I m moving forward," he said.
Biden was commissioned as an ensign in May
2013, and assigned as a public affairs officer in a
Norfolk, Virginia-based reserve unit. A month later,
he tested positive for cocaine, and he was discharged
in February, according to the report.
The US official said the Navy never had contact
with the vice president s office over the issue, and
that standard procedure for failed drug tests is admin-
istrative discharge. The vice president s office didn t
comment on the report.
Hunter is the younger of Biden s two sons. His
older brother, Beau, is Delaware s attorney general
and a major in the Delaware Army National Guard.
He was deployed for a year in Iraq. (CNN)
