LOS ANGELES – A former Marine and an active-duty Marine say their photographs were secretly posted online without their consent along with nude photos of other women.
The pair, who were clothed in the photos, on Wednesday applauded a military investigation into reports that images of nude women in the armed services were shared on social media, including the Facebook page, "Marines United."
Their lawyer, Gloria Allred, said there may be hundreds of such postings and that they prompted pornographic and violent replies, including some recommending that female Marines be raped or shot.
Meanwhile, a former Marine, Erin Kirk-Cuomo, said female service members have been telling their superiors about such websites for more than a decade. She said they were "laughed off."
