Gang presence in the United States military

Gang presence in the United States military is a phenomenon in which members of American street gangs such as the Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings and many others either join the United States Armed Forces, or are recruited to join the gangs while already in the military. In 2008, FBI gang investigator Jennifer Simon stated that 1-2% of the U.S. military belongs to gangs, which is 50-100 times the rate in the general population. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment, the NGIC has identified members of more than 53 gangs who have served in the United States military, including Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings, MS-13, SureƱos, Juggalos, the Aryan Brotherhood, Barrio Azteca, Bandidos, Hell's Angels, and Gangster Disciples.
