Commandant asks: “Do you want to be a Marine?” in response to photo scandal


By Team MOC

This weekend, the Marine Corps and wider military community, was rocked by an article first published on The War Horse. A Facebook group, Marines United, with more than 30,000 active duty and veteran men had shared and commented on pictures of female Marines. All of the photos had been used without their permission or consent. Some had been copied from social media, others sent in as “revenge porn” from ex-partners, and still others were taken without their knowledge and then shared on a Google drive. Some women were identified by name, rank, and current location. Comments–that included violent rape threats–were posted by men affiliated with the military community.  NCIS is currently investigating.

Critics claim the Marine Corps’ response hasn’t been forceful enough, but the Corps’ leadership said they are concerned about impacting the legal side of things — fallout from what happened when Gen. Amos was Commandant and he made candid statements on the record that later came up during a UCMJ proceeding.

Here is the response from Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Neller:

  1. Semper Fi Sir. Have to root out these bad seeds as the Marine Corps is no place for this behavior.

  2. I WAS IN THE NAVY FOR 27 YEARS AND NEVER SEEN ANYTHING SO DISGUSTING IN ALL MY LIFE. WE NEVER DEGRADED OUR WOMEN IN UNIFORM LIKE THEY ARE DOING TODAY. THEY FIGHT JUST AS HARD AS THE MEN AND I WAS IN NAM IN 68-70 WITH SPECIAL OPS AND KILLED A MANY OF GOOK BUT NEVER DID WE SEE SHAME IN OUR RANKS. WAVES,WACS, BAMS, NEVER SAW THIS KIND OF SHIT IN THEIR DAY.
    SO YOU MARINES GET TOGETHER AND FIND OUT WHO IS DOING THIS SHIT TO THE WIVES, GIRLFRIENDS, MOTHERS, AND KICK SOME MILITARY ASS AND THEN TAKE NAMES.
    FORGET WHAT THE BRASS SAYS, THEY ARE TRYING TO SAVE THEIR ASSES, BUT IT IS UP TO US HE FIGHTING MEN TO TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM.
    IT MIGHT BE BRASS BUT IT UP TO US TO KICK SOME MILITARY ASS!!!!!!
    BY THE WAY I’M ALSO A TEXAN AND WE DON’T TREAT OUR HORSES LIKE THEY TREAT THERE WOMEN.
