Back in the fall of 2017, a graduate of West Point flashed a pro-Communist message inside his cap. The incident caused quite an uproar and the military decided to investigate. Now the young man is leaving the Army.

‘Commie Cadet’ Spenser Rapone Leaving Army with ‘Other Than Honorable Discharge’
Eight months after his communist social media postings and conduct caused a conservative media firestorm, 2nd Lieutenant Spenser Rapone (better known as “the commie cadet”) is reportedly being processed out of the Army with the most severe type of military administrative discharge — an “other than honorable discharge.”

SOFREP, a military news site run by Special Ops veterans, first reported the news that the “commie cadet” was finally being drummed out of the Army. For some time, the website had been trying to get an update on Rapone’s status, to no avail…
SOFREP said that his “other than honorable discharge” was “likely the harshest punishment the Army could give Rapone unless they decided to charge him with something like sedition.”
He probably wasn’t a good fit for the U.S. Military so this was a good decision.
