(Worthy News) - The following letter was written by retired LTC Robert M. Heffington as an open letter. Heffington was an assistant professor at West Point for several years, until this past August.
The letter has been circulating for a few days in private among the military.
Heffington confirmed to American Military News on Wednesday that he did write the letter, and he sent a signed copy.
He wrote the letter in light of recent media coverage of 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, a West Point graduate and infantry officer who recently came under fire for his public advocacy and support of socialism and communism, and being an “official socialist organizer” of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
