Active duty Marine Marisa Woytek, left, and former Marine Erika Butner, claimed Thursday that their pictures were posted to a Facebook group without their consent.

Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marines' top officer, has characterized the postings as "distasteful", adding, "I expect Marines to give their all to be the best human beings, teammates, and Marines possible".
