Self Destruction

Spenser Rapone, military veteran, West Point graduate.


Dedicated communist. Which, by itself, isn't as bad some other belief systems we have become increasingly aware of since the 1980s.

But a dedicated communist that denigrates the Secretary of Defense and the Vice President of the United States in a public forum? Calling the Secretary of Defense an evil, vile fuc* is not a career building move for a new lieutenant.

Just so we're clear on where this is going. Article 88 of the UCMJ states “Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”


Life is hard. It's harder when you're stupid.

Maybe he did it on purpose, to make himself a martyr.

To what cause? What possible advancement could come from this?

how did he get into the academy

Goober, what could possibly have motivated the last DoD leaker? That chick with the weird name? It's like they want to get caught or something.

Wild guess. He went in expecting to work for the Democrats when he graduated. Now his expected cushy world has disappeared, and shows no signs of returning for a long time, if ever. What's a dedicated communist supposed to do?

If he quits now, he's on the hook for all those years of schooling. Bet that never occurred to him!

For all those of you questioning how he got into the Academy, please note that he just graduated. Do the math and figure out who was in charge when he was selected. Think CinC...

There is no question as to how he got into WP. He was a veteran of a foreign war, his Congressman, ex-representative Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania recommended him and had enough pull to get him in. Why would the Congressman nominate him, maybe because Rapone's father is in county government. It was just as it is almost always done - it's who you know. Par for the course no matter who is in office.

The piece of shit should be thrown out with a dishonorable discharge. In years gone by, he would already have had more than on good beating, just saying the way it was once upon a time.

I am guessing there is a bright future for him, counting mess tins in a warehouse on some remote base somewhere.

I think there is more to this story than meets the eye.

Even counting mess tins, I bet it isn't long before his ass is fragged.

Any body wanna' bet he get's a "Pass??".... If he isn't drummed out in the next week, only thing I can think is he has a lot of shit on a lot of higher ups that they don't want to go Public!!
