West Point cadet caught using phone during graduation march

A West Point cadet was caught using her smartphone during a march to the military academy's graduation ceremony on Saturday.

A video shared to West Point's Facebook page shows hundreds of cadets marching in step to Michie Stadium for the 218th United States Military Academy Graduation and Commissioning Ceremony.

At about the 50-second mark, a female cadet is clearly seen looking down at her phone as she marches. She doesn't even look up from the device while she is on-screen.

It is unclear what the cadet was doing on her phone, but the incident is attracting criticism on social media from those who say she lacks discipline and respect.

"As a veteran, I want to know why are the cadets allowed to use cell phones while in formation? I am embarrassed for them and the new military standards.obviously the uniform does not mean much to them," one man commented on the Facebook post.
