Lance, I saw your appearance on Myth of the 20th century and found this whilst researching about drumming out. It concerns the music they played during the ceremony that you mentioned.

“A 1995 article in Air Force Law Review argued that drumming out to the Rogue's March ought to be revived and would be good for discipline, but the humiliation risked counting as cruel and unusual punishment within the meaning of the Eighth Amendment. To get round this the article suggested the culprit should be asked to sign a consent form.”

Very relevant in concerns with how effeminate our military has become.
