WASHINGTON - The Pentagon's top military officers have decided to review the kind of staff support provided to senior generals and admirals after several high-profile scandals raised concerns about the inappropriate use of personnel and equipment for personal gain.

The decision, announced on Friday, to take a closer look at support given to senior military leaders was one of two initial recommendations to come from a review of ethics training requested by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta three weeks ago.

Panetta ordered the military's Joint Chiefs of Staff to undertake the ethics training review at a time when two of the military's top generals and the CIA director, himself a retired general, were embroiled in scandals or investigations.
