Reacting to the suicide of a nephew who could no longer take the treatment he received from fellow Marines, Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) has proposed an amendment to the pending 2017 defense-spending bill that would provide avenues of relief for service members who are hazing victims. Chu’s measure would require the watchdog Government Accountability Office (GAO) to report to Congress on the five armed services’ efforts to identify and mitigate hazing incidents in the ranks.
