“Department of Defense policy recognizes the potential adverse effects hazing can have on morale, operational readiness, and mission accomplishment. Hazing is prohibited and should never be tolerated."

"Although the Secretary of Defense has authorized all services to incorporate this policy into a punitive regulation, the Air Force does not have such a regulation and there are no plans to incorporate the policy into such a regulation; however, the Air Force may pursue disciplinary action under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) for dereliction of duty or for the underlying misconduct, such as assault, battery, maltreatment of subordinates, etc.”

Military Commander and the Law (2009 electronic update)

As values-based organizations, ROTC units at the University of Kansas prohibit hazing.   Each of the ROTC programs at KU maintains its own website.
