    Rather troubling. The Pentagon IG says "yes" while the Army is holding out with a "no."

    Yes and No.

    I think we can assume he did something that most people might consider not honorable

    The Honor Code is applies cadets, not support staff assigned to West Point.

    We could branch this off to several interesting discussions (i.e should Army officer have an honor code? If yes, what should happen when they violate such code. Should behavior of West Point grads be different from ROTC/OCS officers because of the West Point Honor Code?)

    Nothing like leading by example.
