We're tracking, well we will be.

Congresswoman Chu
New legislation set to be introduced Tuesday would require the Pentagon to create a database tracking incidents of hazing in the military, carry out an annual survey of U.S. troops on the issue and boost training so it is better recognized and handled.
The bill is called the Harry Lew Military Hazing Accountability and Prevention Act, said Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.), who crafted the legislation and named it after her nephew.

The recommendations stem from a report released in February by the Government Accountability Office.

A Royal Marine and an ex-Marine have been convicted of playing a part in an initiation ceremony which saw a new recruit lie in a paddling pool of urine and vomit while eggs were thrown at him.
The Courier (UK) reports.
