70 Percent of Marine Commander Firings This Year Due to Bias, Disrespect | Military

The Marine Corps is continuing an aggressive top-down push to root out gender-based bias and a culture of disrespect in the service, highlighted by a high-profile social media scandal that erupted last year.

In an address to the Pentagon’s Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services (DACOWITS) at a quarterly meeting near Washington, D.C., this week, Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Glenn Walters said that five of the seven Marine commanders removed from their posts to date this year displayed a “nexus” of these cultural issues.

“It’s because of command climate, how they treat people, how they treat people of different genders,” he said.
