    Military hazing, or the imposition of painful and/or humiliating practices on recruits, is a common form of bullying. It has a long and contested history but, unlike other forms of bullying, proponents within the armed forces defend it, often with great passion. This article explores some reasons for its longevity. In the U.S. Marines, army, navy, and airforce, hazing is generally justified in individual, psychological terms. In this article, I argue that there are stronger institutional forces encouraging its practice.
