The U. Marine Corps officials have called on the Naval Criminal Investigative Service following revelations by Vice News last week that images of female service members had been shared in a Dropbox folder called "Hoes Hoin'. Vice reported that most of the images in the folder show women in military clothing. Some show the women's faces, dog tags, uniforms and name tags. A few are of service members 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 said. Christopher Harrison told the Military Times. A Pentagon spokesperson told the newspaper that the Defense Department was also "aware of reports concerning the Dropbox site" and said it would be investigated and prosecuted if necessary. Dropbox told the Military Times that the link to the images had been removed and banned so that it couldn't be recirculated.
