Fallout of "Marines United" scandal

Corey Dickstein of Stars and Stripes has written this informative interim report on the disciplinary and administrative actions the U.S. Marine Corps has taken in light of the "Marines United" nude photo-sharing scandal. Two officers have been relieved of command and 33 other Marines have been penalized:
In addition to the two fired commanders, two Marines have been involuntarily separated from service, another has been jailed and 30 others have faced some form of reprimand for actions related to the scandal, said Marine Maj. Iain Pedden, leader of the Marine Corps’ military justice branch. 
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has identified 78 active-duty and reservist Marines as persons of interest in a range of activities related to the Marines United scandal, Pedden said Tuesday. To date, 45 cases have been adjudicated, 30 have been sent to commanders for disposition and three others are continuing to be investigated by NCIS.
