"PILLOW" FIGHT AT WEST POINT RESULTS IN
© 2015 MilitaryCorruption.com
An annual rite of passage for West Point cadets turned bloody last month when at least 30 members of the class of 2019 turned a "pillow fight" into a brawl.
Among the injuries were a broken leg, broken nose, many concussions and dozens of lacerations.
The violence began, sources said, when some cadets slipped "hard objects" into pillowcases and beat their buddies in the courtyard of the famed U.S. military academy.
USMA NOT THE PLACE IT USED TO BE
Of course, West Point has fallen on hard times in recent years.
Disgraced former Superintendent GEN David Huntoon did much to tarnish the image of the service academy during his reign, but his pal, now-retired COL Mike "NO COMBAT" Colpo (see Related Stories Box below) was another politically-connected slug who got the job of chief of staff while never going overseas, much less risking combat, in his 30 years sucking on the federal tit.
Colpo lacked courage and a Combat Infantry Badge, but his ticket to ride was his West Point Class of 1978 ring. Huntoon, rumored to have been cheating on his wife with an imperious civilian mistress at the academy, took care of Colpo back at Carlisle Barracks when he installed him as chief of staff there.
"DAMAGE-CONTROL" BY GEN. CASLEN
As for the latest in a long line of scandals to hit West Point, Superintendent GEN Robert L. Caslen Jr. is hard at work doing damage control. He knows U.S. taxpayers are in no mood to keep funding archaic service academies when cadets carry on like the recent incident at USMA.
"Although the vast majority of cadets appear to have maintained the spirit of the event, it is apparent a few did not," the general said. "A military police investigation is ongoing. I assure you, the chain-of-command will take appropriate action when the investigation is complete.
"We remain committed to the development of leaders of character," Caslen said.
