Hazing Survey

We cannot assure anonymity to respondents who admit to criminal activity or provide statements that imply a threat to themselves or others.

PURPOSE:
  • This survey is designed to give members of the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback to the commander. This process helps leadership identify concerns and highlight areas where they might best focus their efforts.

SURVEY INSTRUCTIONS:
  • ALL survey items must be answered.
  • Once all survey items are completed, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.
  • When you have submitted the survey, a "Thank You" note will appear.
  • For purposes of this survey, CO refers to the squadron CO (Det OIC if survey conducted for detachment use). If respondents desire to address conditions at higher, adjacent, or lower levels, provide those remarks in the free text comments section.

OUR COMMITMENT TO ANONYMITY:
  • Responses cannot be tied to the respondent. Your responses are anonymous.  Your responses are separated from your personal information (e.g., rank, gender, etc.) so that your CO cannot tie the two together.  For example, you may be the only female, E-8 in your unit, but your CO cannot tie your responses to that information.  Please call 888-603-3170 if you would like to learn how these protections are implemented.

Hazing is defined as any conduct whereby a military member or members, regardless of service or rank, without proper authority causes another military member or members, regardless of service or rank, to suffer or be exposed to any activity which is cruel, abusive, humiliating, oppressive, demeaning, or harmful. Soliciting or coercing another to perpetrate any such activity is also considered hazing. Hazing need not involve physical contact among or between military members; it can be verbal or psychological in nature. Actual or implied consent to acts of hazing does not eliminate the culpability of the perpetrator.

Hazing can include, but is not limited to, the following: playing abusive or ridiculous tricks; threatening or offering violence or bodily harm to another; striking; branding; taping; tattooing; shaving; greasing; painting; requiring excessive physical exercise beyond what is required to meet standards; “pinning”; “tacking on”; “blood wings”; or forcing or requiring the consumption of food, alcohol, drugs, or any other substance.

Hazing does not include command-authorized or operational activities; the requisite training to prepare for such missions or operations; administrative corrective measures; extra military instruction; athletics events, command-authorized physical training, contests or competitions and other similar activities that are authorized by the chain of command.
