Last weekend, news first broke from The War Horse and Reveal that a Facebook group, Marines United, had a link to a Google drive folder containing hundreds of photos of women. Most women pictured were current or former service members. Some of the photos were stolen from Facebook or Instagram profiles, others were nude photos sent privately to boyfriends or husbands, and some photos or videos were taken without the women knowing. Marines -- active duty and veterans -- and British Royal Marines. The photos had thousands of comments, mostly sexual and degrading. Some comments promoted rape or other acts of sexual violence. The journalist who first broke the story, Thomas Brennan, is a Marine veteran and founder of the news website, The War Horse. Since the story became public, he says that he and his family have received death and rape threats and Marine United members have promised rewards for nude pictures of his wife and daughter.
The Marine Corps reacts
The Garrison Girls — wives of men from all three Armed services — have bared all in the series of black and white photos. Each picture depicts the women — who are all aged between 19 and 40 and have no previous modelling experience — posing with flags and items of military uniform. This is the second calendar they have released and shooting is already under way for the edition. The calendar's campaign organiser, Sarah Bennett Thurston, 32, whose husband Paul serves in the Army, said the models, who have 32 children between them, were inspired by their husbands' bravery.

A group of military wives has launched a nude calender in honour of their husbands.
By Melissa Renahan on June 18, When your Servicemember is deployed, you become well acquainted with customs forms, flat rate boxes and the slowest times at the local post office. You're warned not to send alcohol, ammunitions, and in recent years, pork products. However, what about the other no-no item? The one that will surely make your Soldier or Airman smile, maybe break a sweat, and definitely miss home? That's right, we're talking about "wife porn. However, the debate rages on about whether a wife sending photos to her own husband can actually be designated as "pornographic. One Army wife, who requested for the aforementioned reasons that her name be withheld, confessed to doing a professional boudoir photo shoot during one of her husband's recent stints downrange. The photos are all very tasteful and I see nothing wrong with these types Such concerns are why many wives are hesitant to take the plunge and remove any clothing for a photo shoot; there is a definite risk involved.
A GROUP of military wives trekked up a mountain and bravely bared all in freezing temperatures of minus 4C to create a nude calendar in honour of their husbands. THE Garrison Girls, who are wives of men from the three Armed services, stripped off in the Scottish mountains to reveal their breasts and bums. The women, who have never modelled before, can be seen stretched out naked on rocks by a river, walking across a narrow wooden bridge and perched in the window of a ruined castle. Helmets, berets and military kit bags are cleverly hidden in the set of artistic calendar shots to remind people of the linked to the armed forces. By Kerry Mullen.
