The U.S. military has come under fire for hazing recently, most notably for a controversial videotape depicting Marines "pinning" new recruits, stabbing medals into their chests. What do you think?

    Andy Wojcinski
    Sergeant
  • "Hazing is an important part of joining any exclusive group. Why, you wouldn't believe the hazing you have to go through to get into the 'Nurses Buried In My Backyard' group."

    Pete Pappas
    Librarian
  • "As the wife of a Marine, I think that hazing is understandable. Especially when I make bad meatloaf."

    Shelley Thaler
    Homemaker
  • "Here in the U.S. Armed Forces, we're proud to say that today's mistreated recruits are tomorrow's sociopathic loners."

    Linda Fallon
    Lieutenant
  • "I'm in the Army, and I've had my head held underwater in a toilet until almost drowning more times before 9 a.m. than most people do all day."

    Orson Brock
    Private First Class
  • "I was tied down, whipped and penetrated anally by four young men. Military? No, I was never in the military, why do you ask?"
