I spoke to a friend recently whose DS attends a SMC that my DS also is considering. I dont want to say the school name because in all honesty I dont know if there is a problem or issue. He mentioned it (the school) was tough, that he loved it, but also mentioned there is a lot of hazing. Time did not allow for me to question deeper. My concern is that I have always taught my kids and others I have coached that hazing is wrong and have held a Zero tolerance policy. I have had no interaction with any of the SA's or SMC's in ref to what if any hazing occurs. Can anyone shed light on this and should I be concerned or not. I have a pretty good idea that my DS will not be down with any type of hazing and was wondering what problems will occur if he bucks the system when it comes to that. Some cadets could probably answer this question and let me know what the scoop is. Also, my perception of hazing is not being yelled at or made to work hard ie push ups situps, running, PT etc, I am talking about flat out inappropriate behavior.
