By Helen Pow. Pictures and calendars featuring half-naked women will be stripped from U. Air Force work spaces and public areas under a widespread inspection to stamp out sexual assault in the armed forces. Commanders and supervisors in all active, reserve and Air National Guard units have 10 days to complete the sweep for pin-up images or materials reminiscent of the all-male military from 20 or 30 years ago. Air Force chief General Mark Welsh said having a culture where such objectification of women is tolerated may be contributing to reports of sexual assault increasing to more than this year in the Air Force alone. Old-fashioned: Commanders in all active, reserve and Air National Guard units have 10 days to complete the sweep for pin-up images or materials reminiscent of the all-male military from 20 or 30 years ago stock photo. Welsh said he has received multiple complaints about images, jokes and comments that made women and some men uncomfortable.
Hundreds of lewd photos of female servicemembers discovered in Dropbox folder
Marine Corps officials have called on the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to investigate after it was revealed that images of nude female servicemembers had been shared on Dropbox. Christopher Harrison said Monday. Harrison and Air Force Maj. Carla Gleason, a spokeswoman for the Pentagon, confirmed the new allegations span beyond the Marine Corps and could include all of the military services. They would not say Monday whether active-duty or reserve servicemembers were suspected of distributing the content, which was made illegal in December as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. But the pace at which social media platforms expand and evolve and the anonymity with which some of them are able to operate online can make it difficult for authorities to detect such harassment or to identify the victims, she said. In the new allegations, Vice reported most of the images in the folder show women in military clothing. A few are of servicemembers fully clothed, in apparent attempt to shame or discredit them. Some of the photos had been previously shared in other online groups while others appear to be new, Vice reported. Dropbox said in a statement that the link to the photographs had been removed and banned from its file sharing service.
An anonymous user of an adult messaging website posted photos Nov. The poster asked for a "win," using online slang for a nude or sexually explicit photo. The posts often were accompanied by obscene and harassing comments, along with identifying information about the women. Now, at least one other website is showing just how far-reaching the scandal may be, and how tricky policing it may be. Business Insider reported March 9 that users of an explicit adult message board called AnonIB have either posted or sought "wins" from military bases worldwide for months, a process known in cyber speak as doxxing. While posters can be anonymous, they've sought out subjects — who appear to be largely female — in some cases by identifying them by name, rank and duty station — a violation of the site's stated rules.
The skills obtained from just a few short months at basic military training in any branch of service is astonishing. One that you will immediately notice is how quickly you learn how to take a shower. Daily hygiene is required when attending any military training program. The military is a cross section of society of people from all over the nation, different socioeconomic groups, different ages and races. Many have different customs, traditions, and habits when it comes to cleanliness. One thing is for certain, the military takes this diverse group and turns them into a unit of military members with new but the same habits, discipline, and common challenges that unite the group into a team. One of the many things that conform to military standards of hygiene is taking daily showers. For the first couple of weeks, your shower will be very short about two minutes. You will learn to wash quickly, and not waste time.
