The Military's Naked Photo-Sharing Scandal Is Wider Than The Marines

It's not just the Marines — other branches of the U.S. military have been implicated in a nude photo-sharing scandal.

News broke previously about members of a Facebook group called "Marines United" posting naked pictures of female Marines and veterans without their consent.

Now, multiple outlets report a separate online forum was used by members of other service branches to share photos of female service members.

The scandal has prompted a Defense Department investigation and a rebuke from military leadership.

Marine Corps Commandant Robert Neller told reporters, "We're going to be self-critical, self-analytical, but we also gotta recognize that there's a problem and we've got to figure out how to solve it."

The Marine Corps plans to offer legal aid, support services and possibly internet reputation management help to the victims of the scandal.
