    Should have rescinded his degree while they were at it or sent him a bill for the education.

    I think most of us would agree @BTCS/USN

    My guess is he will get a bill for his degree. He didn’t complete his mandatory obligation.

    A former student and football player of mine was the class president and first captain in that class. I spoke with him after graduation with words of congratulations and advice, this time from a crusty Senior Chief and no longer his coach. He still calls me coach. Anyway, he, as one can imagine, was an exemplary high school kid and surely by now a stud of a first lieutenant. Rappone and the cadets from that class photoed flashing gang signs or whatever that was are an anomaly. The youth of today have access to technology and information not available just a handful of years ago. They will all be just fine. The outliers will fade away.

    My only issue with this whole situation is that he states “he could no longer stomach the immorality of U.S. imperialism," and spoke out in 2017. The part that really gets me is that he graduated and commissioned from WP in 2016, the pictures he posted were while he was at WP. It seems his inability to stomach whatever started long before 2017, what I don't understand is why he stayed at WP for four years, other then the free education of course.

    As Devil Doc said, it will be nice to see him just fade away.

    An article and photo of this commie showed up on one of my news sources this morning. The pic is of his middle finger with a Fort Drum sign in the background. A final salute to an organization that gave him so much but is now thankfully rid of him.

    My concern is that there are others who are not as dumb as Rappone. This guy will now make a living on the leftist circuit.

    the WePo administration is as much to blame, his views were known long before this photo and he had other now well publicized issues including being reported by a faculty member for insubordination and conduct unbecoming. Why was this douchebag not sent packing long before he was?

    Is Scott Rappone related to Spenser Rapone?

    Not sure what your drift is. “Good ol’ boy white Protestants”? Seriously? Like I thought that was the Army? From the guy who bad mouths any part of the Army that does not resemble his preconceived notions.
