Social Media Scrutiny

National VFW - 3/28/2017

Congress continues its inquiries in the wake of the "Marines United” scandal, where naked images of female service members were posted online accompanied by denigrating comments. On Tuesday, Mr. Anthony Kurta, Performing the Duties of the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and representatives from the Personnel directorates of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force testified on their respective social media policies. Testimony focused on the steps each Department is taking to address this issue, including the creation of task forces and providing additional assistance to victims, as well as possible changes to the Uniformed Code of Military Justice to make it easier to punish individuals who engage in such behavior. Watch the hearing.
