Army cadets have been instructed not to use the TikTok social media app while in uniform, an Army official told Task & Purpose on Thursday.
Maj. Gen. John Evans, head of U.S. Army Cadet Command, "directed all ROTC and JROTC units verify that the TikTok application was not being used for official purposes," Lt. Col. Nichole Downs, a spokeswoman, said in a statement. "No guidance was issued regarding Cadets' private use of TikTok."
Michael Allevato enlisted in the U.S Army at 17 during the Vietnam War, a time when it wasn't popular to be a soldier.
He served his country and died in October 2017 at the age of 64. But when Baker County attempted to contact his next of kin, they couldn't find any.

On Friday, I will attend the solemn ceremony at Northwestern University in which Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps students will take the oath to become members of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. As both a faculty member and graduate of Northwestern, I try to attend each year as these outstanding young people commit themselves to a life fraught with potential danger in service to our country. They have earned and deserve our solidarity and support.
Almost 50 years ago, as a Northwestern undergraduate, I was arrested for damaging the NROTC offices during an anti-Vietnam War demonstration. At the time, many of us believed that NROTC contributed to the war effort, and therefore had to be removed from campus.
As a leftist then and now, I have no qualms about admitting to my errors, one of which was a wholesale misunderstanding of the importance of the ROTC program — Army, Navy and Marine Corps and Air Force — on college campuses.
