According to the West Point Military Academy, “”Federal law prohibits members of the military from using their official positions for personal gain,” which “extends to using or appearing to use ones military status to solicit gifts of money.”
Thus, with discretion being the better part of this cadet’s valor, he voluntarily closed his crowdfunding campaign to raise $1,200 to pay the travel and hotel expenses of his favorite porn star so she could attend the Military Academy’s Yearling Winter Weekend.
The campaign was only able to raise $370 when it was closed.
Although reported in a number of publications, GoFundMe has made the campaign disappear on its website.
Proper credit should be given to the website Task & Purpose which describes itself as “a military and veteran-focused digital media company.”
