The Cut Cadet

Are these military cadets? I think so, but my guess is that it's from a school other than West Point. The big question is why did someone feel the need to cut the photograph in half. One explanation, and the most likely, is that it fit the frame better that way. Then again, maybe the guy in the middle ran off with one of the other guys girlfriend, so cut him right down the middle. A symbolic substitution for doing it in real life. Ouch.


  1. What amazes me is you ended up with both pieces. It would seem if they were purposely cut in half one side would have been tossed. Interesting it was cut and both sides saved.

  2. They are cadets in gray blouse, or at least that's what Virginia Military Institute calls them.
