Top Marine Gen. Robert Neller told senators he intends to solve issues in the Marines that prompted former and current Corps members to share nude photos of female service members online without their permission.

Neller directly addressed female Corps members, and asked them to trust Marine leadership to “take action and correct this problem.”

“I ask you to trust me personally as your commandant and when I say I’m outraged that many of you haven’t been given the same respect when you earn the title Marine,” he said.
