What’s wrong with the military?

I’ve been reading stories about the US Military Academy, and paens to “Duty, Honor, Country” and the importance of always telling the truth—and then things like this:

“The Army now admits that it secretly dumped 64 million pounds of nerve and mustard agents into the sea, along with 400,000 chemical-filled bombs, land mines and rockets and more than 500 tons of radioactive waste – either tossed overboard or packed into the holds of scuttled vessels.”

Does anyone know of a book or study that explains what happens to so corrupt the idea of “Duty, Honor, Country” and honesty?
