‘Way to Show Discipline at West Point’: Cadet Blasted After Video Shows Her Marching to Graduation — but Focused on Something Else Entirely

When the United States Military Academy posted a short Facebook clip of its graduating West Point cadets marching to ceremonies Saturday, it included the caption, “Rise & shine with #USMA2016! This morning they will finish their 47-month cadet experience! #WithHonorWeLead.”

But what one cadet was caught doing near the end of the minute-long clip had many commenters doubting the latter credo.

A female cadet was caught looking down at what appeared to be a cell phone while she was marching — and with that, observers didn’t just lambaste the cadet in question, but also classmates she was marching with, along with the state of the military in general.

“That’s what’s wrong with this military and government. This is not just another college graduation,” Al Vega commented. “No military pride or discipline being taught. Embarrassment!!!!”

“As a veteran, I want to know why are the cadets allowed to use cell phones while in formation?” Shirley Smith commented. “I am embarrassed for them and the new military standards. Obviously the uniform does not mean much to them.”

“Amazing…in just a few hours, these cadets become our future leaders of the US military. They don’t even seem to know anything about D&C! Seriously, can’t even march in step, wrong uniforms, playing with their smartphones?!?!” Mike Brinkman commented. “Look like a bunch of privates on the first day of basic!!!”

“Wow way to show discipline at West Point. Texting while marching, wearing sneakers and not dress shoes, also not wearing gloves like everyone else is,” Tina Ryan commented. “To think these are future officers and can’t even follow basic military rules. So disappointing cadets.”

One commenter didn’t like what the cadet in question was doing, but noted that most of her classmates behaved better.

“It’s called bearing and walking in a military manner, people are watching and how you carry yourself is how people perceive the service as a whole, we are briefed on this constantly,” Michael Bersch wrote. “Marching in formation and texting regardless or branch of service is not allowed even in route step. The majority of them are doing what they are supposed to do.”

    • By the way, if you're into stuff like this, you might wanna check out https://thepythagoras.com/. They have some neat articles about ancient civilizations and their contributions to science and math. It’s really interesting how much we owe to these early thinkers.
    • The Dendera Zodiac is such an amazing piece of history. Imagine ancient Egyptians looking up at the same stars we do now and creating this detailed map. It's mind-blowing! So, what do I think about it? I think it's a fascinating blend of art and astronomy. Those ancient folks really knew their stuff. The way they incorporated their gods and mythologies into the constellations is just brilliant. And it's not just about the stars, it’s a glimpse into how they viewed the universe and their place in it.
    • FIFA's collaboration with Algorand represents a significant milestone for blockchain technology. Algorand will serve as the official blockchain platform for FIFA, supporting events such as the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. This partnership is poised to enhance FIFA's digital asset management while boosting Algorand's visibility through advertising and promotional opportunities. On another note, I've been tuning into African football recently. The match between Kanifing East FC and Latrikunda United was unexpectedly impressive. African football often goes underappreciated, yet the skill and enthusiasm in these matches are evident. We can expect even more significant development and excitement in African football with increased attention and support.
