US military academy pillow fight

Video posted on social media shows hundreds of cadets pouring into the courtyard striking each other with pillows for an extended period of time.In a statement, the school’s superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr. said spirit events like the pillow fight are held “in order to build esprit de corps among their class, especially following their tough first summer.””While these spirit events do occur, we never condone any activity that results in intentional harm to a teammate. Although the vast majority of the class appears to have maintained the spirit of the event; it is apparent that a few did not,” Caslen said.
