Re: “Can Air Force Academy cadets become parents while enrolled? Apparently so.

It is incredibly hypocritical to say it is okay to break the code you agreed to, when being accepted, over thousands of other applicants, and attending a school (that taxpayers pay for) as long as you lie about it and omit your name on the birth certificate until after your graduation. And if they feel so strongly that it is OK to do this, don't go around so publicly sharing the news of the baby. Are we being asked to see this as "boys will be boys"? The Academy was designed to showcase the finest of our generation. If this is our finest, we are in a sad state. I am not saying they are horrible young people because of this, not at all. I am simply saying, Cadet Sutton should not be allowed to graduate from an academy where he chose to dishonor the honor code. Actions have consequences. If they feel they are ready to be parents, it is time for them to act like adults and accept the responsibility. His father-in-law-to-be should be the first to admit he should be required to leave the school. Harvard denied admission to students already accepted for this fall due to them breaking the honor code they had agreed to. Surely our military academies should hold their standards at least as high. I wish them well, just not on my tax dollars or representing the Academy.
