Cadet controversy at West Point graduation

- Many people are pointing out what one West Point cadet was doing while marching to graduation. Can you spot something unusual?

Take a look at the Facebook video. You can see the graduating class of the United States Military Academy’s class of 2016.

But hundreds of commentators are drawing attention to a student who appears to be texting on her phone while marching.

West Point’s original Facebook post has gotten more than 4,500 shares and 700 comments. Many say future U.S. military officers should avoid “the undisciplined act of texting” during graduation.

Others say it seems certain cadets were not marching in step, while others were not wearing matching uniforms.
