Both of my wife's brothers went through Army ROTC. After a few drinks
the older one told me about his "initiation". They were in Iraq and
initiation of a new officer for his squad was done by stripping the
officer and duct taping him to the barrel of an M1 tank. He said he
knocked one of them out but there were too many enlisted guys for him to
fight off. I'm sure there was more to the story but his sister was
there so he didn't go into too many details.
