The Defense Department is investigation a Facebook group called “Marines United” for sharing thousands of nude photos of active female members in the military.
The group has more than 30.000 members, all male Marines and members of the British Royal Marines and Navy Corpsman. Reportedly, many of them are posting obscene comments about their female colleagues and at least two dozen of them have been identified by their military duty station, rank and full name.
Quashing the group is not enough because many members who have left the group started to post elsewhere and even formed a new group called “Marines United 2.0,” that’s growing rapidly.
The admin of the “Marines United 2.0,” railed against “snitches” and many are angry because their group got unwanted national attention.
If this was not bad enough other offshore groups have been formed who are posting the same types of photos and constantly growing in numbers.
James Mattis, the Secretary of defense and an ex marine himself has called the groups “egregious violations of the fundamental values we uphold.” He also added that the lack of respect for the female fellow member of the military is unacceptable and such behavior will not be tolerated. All mariners should uphold their values and maintain their ability to fight and defeat the enemy on the battlefield.
In the next couple of days Robert Neller, a Marine Commandant should appear before the Senate and update them on this shameful situation.
