In recent weeks, photos of Army 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone promoting communism in uniform began circulating the internet.
Typically barred from promoting political affiliations while in uniform, Rapone’s actions were a major departure from acceptable military conduct. Even worse, the ideology he espouses is not only dangerous, but a moral enemy of the country he swore to protect.
Rightfully, many military leaders condemned the photos. For their part, West Point and the Army opened up an investigation into Rapone’s conduct.
