West Point Graduate Promotes Communism While in Uniform
A recent graduate from West Point posted pictures of himself with pro-communist messages under his uniform and hat while still a cadet.
Second Lieutenant Spencer Rapone posted pictures to his Twitter account over the weekend. One picture shows him, while still a cadet, wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt under his uniform.
Another picture posted shows "Communism Will Win" written under his cap at his graduation from the academy in May.
The United States Military Academy released a statement on Tuesday, which stated the following:
The U.S. Military Academy strives to develop leaders who internalize the academy's motto of Duty, Honor, Country, and who live the Army values. Second Lieutenant Rapone's actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army. As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of political speech in uniform. Second Lieutenant Rapone's chain of command is aware of his actions and is looking into the matter. The academy is prepared to assist the officer's chain of command as required
