    The two-star general who heads U.S. Army Africa has been fired and recalled to Washington, amid allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with the wife of an enlisted soldier, the Army said Friday. An Army statement provided to The Associated Press said that Maj. Gen. Joseph Harrington was removed from his job due to a loss in confidence in his ability to command. He is one in a string of senior Army officers who have been disciplined for bad behavior, triggering the development earlier this year of new programs aimed at shaping stronger, more ethical leaders.

    The United States Military Academy is being infiltrated and attacked by radical leftists, feminists and Islamists who are on a mission to transform West Point into a bastion of anti-American doctrine, feminist theology and Islamo-Marxist operations, just as they transformed the US Army into a leftist freak show in the last two decades. The Long Gray Line is quickly becoming nothing more than an undisciplined, insubordinate mass of brainwashed, entitled social justice warriors more focused on the LGBT agenda and diversity than they are about putting cold steel down range. After a summer of endless Navy misadventures and collisions at...

    Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Heffington issued an open letter to West Point graduates earlier this week blasting the superintendent, commandant, and dean of the military academy for contributing to a “culture of permissiveness.” The letter was subsequently posted on the website of American Military News. Heffington told The Daily Caller he wrote the letter to the USMA Class of 1963 when several of its graduates contacted him asking how Spenser Rapone, a cadet espousing radically anti-American views, was allowed to graduate. “The Superintendent refuses to enforce admissions standards or the cadet Honor Code, the Dean refuses to enforce academic...

    If the stars align for defense contractor SAIC, the US Army and Marine Corps will soon be buying hundreds of armored vehicles designed in Singapore. Yesterday, six months after joining forces for the first time on the Marines’ Amphibious Combat Vehicle competition – and just four days before the massive Association of the US Army conference opens in DC – Virginia-based SAIC and Singapore Technologies Kinetics officially announced they are teaming up again for the Army’s Mobile Protected Firepower program, a light tank to support light infantry in places where the massive M1 Abrams cannot go. SAIC didn’t go in...

    Revolutionary Guard chief issues stark warning to U.S. troops, saying that U.S. regional military bases would be at risk if Washington imposes further sanctions on Iran Iran warned the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guard Corp as a terrorist group and said U.S. regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed.

    According to the Pentagon, the Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha, otherwise known as an “A-Team,” went on a routine patrol Wednesday afternoon with about 20 troops from the Niger Armed Forces when they came under heavy fire. Officials said a barrage of machine gun fire and rocket-propelled grenades from about 50 militants forced the U.S. and Nigerien troops into defensive positions near the border with Mali. The fire peppered the troops’ trucks and shattered windows before they could regroup and fire back. The soldiers called in support from French attack helicopters and fighter jets. It’s not clear whether the aircraft...

    Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone is a sign of the times. Spenser Rapone is a tenfold beacon in the night, a thousand blaring klaxons showing the nation and the world just how far our glorious army has fallen. Spenser Rapone is a disgrace to the army, to the famous 10th Mountain Division where is currently assigned and to the United States of America. His continued presence in the US military is a slap in the face to every grunt, tanker, zoomie, swabbie and gyrene that gave their lives for this country. Rapone literally came out of the gulag last week, when...

    It’s not your father’s army anymore. It’s certainly not your grandfather’s army, nor is it your older brother’s. Whose army is it in 2017: feminists, communists, radical leftists, moral cowards, and perfumed princes and princesses – that’s whose army it is. The lean green machine is in dire straits and for all intents and purposes is about ready to flat line without any chances of resuscitation. Bury the United States Army at Arlington, and engrave on its tombstone, “Killed by cultural Marxists, feminists, feather merchants and moral cowards.” The latest crisis to engulf the army, and for that matter, the...

    Communist West Point graduate 2nd. Lt. Spenser Rapone called Secretary of Defense James Mattis the most “evil, vile f***” in the entire Trump administration. After reports emerged tying Rapone to the Twitter account @punkproletarian on Monday, West Point issued a statement distancing itself from Rapone’s tweets, which included calling for political violence against the right, referring to Trump as a fascist, and openly promoting communism while in uniform. West Point also noted that Rapone’s chain of command had opened an investigation. But one of the tweets which has so far escaped attention is Rapone denigrating Mattis in the most vulgar...

    UPDATE : West Point has responded , saying theyÂ’re looking into this matter, that RaponeÂ’s chain of command is aware, and that his actions do not reflect the values of West Point or the U.S. Military: The U.S. Military Academy strives to develop leaders who internalize the academy's motto of Duty, Honor, Country, and who live the Army values. Second Lieutenant Rapone's actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army. As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of...

    As the discourse rolls on regarding former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick‘s decision to take a knee during the national anthem–and the movement his protest ignited–support for the blacklisted athlete-cum-activist is sprouting up across the country. Yesterday afternoon, on Twitter, some of that support came from U.S. Army Infantry Officer and U.S. Military Academy at West Point alumnus, Spenser Rapone. Rapone posts under the handle @punkproletarian and is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Under the hashtag #VeteransForKaepernick, he tweeted an image of himself raising the left clenched-fist of solidarity, support and resistance as well as the message, “Communism...

Rose was awarded the nation’s second highest medal for valor, the Distinguished Service Cross, in 1971.

Lt. Col. Christopher Downey was cited for assault for bumping a camera that inadvertently hit the nose of an Army staffer who was trying to capture the scene on video.

    A 240-foot salvage ship is on its way to aid in the recovery of a crashed Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and its missing crew west of Kaena Point, a spokesman for the 25th Infantry Division said.

The ship’s involvement represents a transition from seafloor sonar mapping and camera observation by the Navy using an unmanned underwater vehicle and remotely operated vehicle to actual salvage and recovery.
