This photo taken Jan. 9, 2014 shows Capt. Lauren Choate, a Minuteman 3 missile launch officer, at the console of a launch simulator used for training at F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo.

The question persists, nonetheless: At what point do breakdowns in discipline put nuclear security in jeopardy? (AP Photo/Robert Burns)
