Gen. Omar Bradley please step up and slap these guys. Then let Patton in the room to show how it is done. MacArthur, I don't know. maybe he would have shot them.
I don't think lack of training led to some of these guys confusing hand shakes with what they did.
Unfortunately, I think the problem here is that we aren't keeping an eye on these guys as they come up through the ranks or looking the other way. I'd be surprised if there were not hints along the way that these folks weren't the best of leaders.
Word on the street last summer was that Huntoon had been involved in misconduct with his aide, to whom he gave a top-level position at WP, for years. I'm sure plenty of people knew, including Mrs. Huntoon.
Yet another series of examples of the Cold War Cancer that still plagues the Army and other services. Dinosaurs like these guys need to go. Careers spent fighting no one but their peers for nothing but promotions have made them self-promoting ethical blights. Good riddance.
Just curious, Supe's aide used to be a CPT.
If so what sort of "top-level" positions for CPTs are at WP? From my perspective, being the Supe's aide might be the top leve post for CPTs at WP. Or what could be considered as top level posts for MAJs at West Point?
I think LTG Huntoon is still there. Three GOs were reprimanded, not fired, not force to resign.
She was his secretarial aide, not an aide-de-camp. She is currently occupying a top position for a civilian at WP. Some members on here who've written books have dealt with her. The whole saga is apparently widely known to cadets. I first heard about his misdeeds from a cadet, so at the very least they should've relieved him for his subordinates having no faith in his command.
But, we can't afford the black eye of relieving the Supe now can we?
What is better for the DoD - "can't afford the black eye" or sending a message to senior officers and leaders that they will be held accountable for their actions.
If I may dream
When a general gets fired for misconduct and other generals don't get the message, fire more generals until message is received. I don't think there is any shortage of officers who want to become general officers.
We did it at USAFA but that was for a LOT more than what it sounds like at USMA.
Our "former Sup" was reduced to his permanent grade and retired.
