What makes a grown man feel the need to yell at kids? It’s a question I’ve pondered since my first day at Schuyler.
Yesterday Fort Schuyler lost the hardest screw ever to turn in da bronx, Mate Jim McCoy… and the schuyler alumni pages are on fire with stories, grief and words of sadness.
Kids need disciple, kids respect it too if only in hindsight. McCoy was a good, hard tough disciplinarian… and I know because I pushed him more than most (possibly more than anyone) but he never lost his sh!t like this… not once… and that’s a good thing.
Thats why we respect him today even though many of us cursed every the mention of his name while we were cadets… he was hard as a nail but always professional!
This guy is a clown and there where many more who worked at Schuyler (some still work there today!) and ALL the other academies (I can say there are plenty in Annapolis and West Point too) who I’ll never respect.
Kids need discipline but nobody needs this BS.
