This did get out of hand and I challenge you, CW2 (Join to see), to think about this situation in another perspective.....this was a case of hazing the lower classmen by the upper classmen - the lesson these cadets learned will be brought with them into the Reserve and Active Components and will make them better leaders, better prepared to recognize hazing and stand up for what is right. As CSM (Join to see) stated, they are college kids. While this was not what we wanted to see, it was and is an opportunity for them to grow....and become better leaders.
I see some good discussion. personally I have a couple of concerns. 1. Cadets were not engaging an enemy, they were engaging their fellow cadets. 2. have the ones who caused injury accepted their wrong or are they trying to hide? 3. What is the response of others who knew? I am thinking about the honor code here.
