A Marine Corps second lieutenant has been charged with involvement in a gay pornographic Web site, the Los Angeles Times reports. Douglas W. Shrier, 26, who is a supply officer at the Marine base at California’s Twentynine Palms is said to be involved with a San Francisco–based Web site that features naked marines. Pornography is forbidden under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Ten marines from California’s Camp Pendleton were discharged on similar charges in 1994.
