Female Marine photos scandal – ‘Marines United’ Facebook page active, pictures being shared

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Washington: Nude photo scandal in the US Marine Corps seems to be expanding wider than previously thought. Initially, it was thought that it was a minor nuisance and that it is not widespread.

But as investigation expands, it has become rather very clear that Marines photo scandal may be much wider than expected. There may be many thousand victims scattered across the US and even beyond who are still oblivious to the fact that their nude photos are being shared with lewd comments by many thousand Marines who are the members of these restricted Facebook groups.

The ‘scourge’ was not limited to only female members of the Marine Corps. Many women who had boyfriends working with different branches of the US armed forced are discovering to their horror that their photos without clothes are spread across the cyber world.

Following the allegations that the nude photo sharing problem was not limited to merely a single branch of army, U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis responded with a message to those under his command, “Lack of respect for the dignity and humanity of fellow members of the Department of Defense is unacceptable and counter to unit cohesion.”

The issue had come to the light when Thomas James Brennan, a Marine veteran and journalist, reported that the private Facebook group Marines United was being used to share pornographic material including the nude pictures. The group, that according to NPR had been launched to take care of mental health and the well-being of marines had turned in to a porn group where slanderous remarks were posed about the female servicewomen along with their cloth less pictures.

U.S. Secretary of Defense further said, “We will not excuse or tolerate such behavior if we are to uphold our values and maintain our ability to defeat the enemy on the battlefield”.

A report by the CBS News claims that members of other branches of the U.S. military were involved in similar activities, and that online bulletin boards were being used to either share or solicit nude or explicit photos and videos of women in the military. A visit to one of the image-sharing sites Friday confirmed that it was still active.

Some reports had claimed that United Facebook group had been shut down. However, reports suggest they are still active and people who were the members of those groups are being redirected to other forums.

Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller in a statement said “There’s been nobody charged so far…My sense is, there’s probably others out there…These allegations themselves, they undermine everything that we stand for as a Marine Corps, and as Marines: discipline, honor, professionalism, and respect and trust amongst each other”.
