March 5, 2017
Press Release

RICHMOND – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) made the following statement in reaction to reports that Marines and former Marines shared nude photos of women on social media:

“I am extremely disappointed to hear about reports of active members and veterans of the Marine Corps sharing nude photos of their female fellow service members. Persons who have dedicated their lives in service of our country should not be victims of this heinous action, especially by their fellow service members. There must be zero tolerance for sexual harassment in the armed services.

“I applaud the individual who brought this information forward. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I am calling for a full investigation and a promise that victims receive the resources they need. I trust that the Marine Corps Commandant, General Neller, will right this wrong and will make it clear that all service members must be treated with respect and that harassment will not be tolerated.”
