US Army investigates nude photos of women soldiers

05/30/2009 | 08:56 PM

WASHINGTON – The US Army is investigating allegations that eight male soldiers took pictures and video of as many as 21 female soldiers in their unit as they showered.

The photos allegedly were taken late last year, before the 266th Military Police Company of the Virginia Army National Guard shipped out to Iraq in December.

Lt. Col. Christopher Garver said Friday the Army is conducting a criminal investigation. No charges have been filed.

Spokeswoman Carolee Nisbet at Fort Dix, New Jersey, says the allegations are disappointing because most soldiers who train there before deployment "live up to the Army values."

The 266th is serving in Basra.
