I agree with this post and the others before yours. If this had been my daughter I think my response would have been along with lines of "Don't come crying to me." When I was in high school and in JROTC (fantastic program BTW!), if we messed up either in school (behavior or grade problems) or at practice for the drill team, we spent plenty of time doing pushups or running laps on the track at high port (carrying a heavy drill team rifle overhead) in full view of everyone else on the team as well as any other teams or the band that may have been practicing at the time. Sgt. E didn't allow any outright bullying or mocking by other team members, and that's because they knew they could be next, LOL! It's VERY effective discipline and character building IF (and only if) it's done right.
