This is something you’d expect coming from a group of immature teenagers, not your United States Marine Corps. Marine officers are now tasked with the mission of punishing those responsible for posting lewd images of female Marines on a private, male-only Facebook page names Marines United.
it seems that one person has been disciplined thus far in connection with the postings, a US military official said. He was an IT subcontractor working for a firm with a support contract for the Marines.
According to the official, “misdeeds” occurred, however no specifics were made publicly known.
Facebook also made a statement asking for anyone in private groups where such content is posted to report individuals posting it to keep the community clean.
“There is no place for this type of demeaning or degrading behavior in our Corps — this includes our actions online,” said Sgt. Maj. Ronald Green, the Corps’ highest-ranking noncommissioned officer.“We need to be brutally honest with ourselves and each other. This behavior hurts fellow Marines, family members and civilians. It is a direct attack on our ethos and legacy.”
“We also remove content that threatens or promotes sexual violence or exploitation,” Facebook said.
