doglover: Don't you have to graduate high school, or GED at least, before you're allowed into the military?
DrPainMD: Why would he want to do that? The day I got out of the service all my uniforms went into the garbage where they belonged.
SnarfVader: doglover: Don't you have to graduate high school, or GED at least, before you're allowed into the military?He did. He completed it early and wants to go to the ceremony, which will be held in June.
BillCo: I'm as patriotic as the next guy and probably more so than most of the Fark hippies, but I have to agree with the principal. Let this guy wear his uniform and the next thing you know, some jerk is going to want to wear a clown suit.
Weaver95: We spend all that time and effort teaching kids to be mindless conformists, then expect them to be fully actualized adults once they graduate high school. We are a very strange society.
Typhoid: Interesting that he and his family don't get the concept of a UNIFORM that everyone is expected to wear at graduation.
HotWingConspiracy: Attention whore denied prime whoring opportunity, turns to media to satiate whorish needs. Film at 11.
clkeagle: If going to the graduation ceremony is his goal, he should dress the same as his classmates
FarKY502: Salute to u principle...The young man should understand he was fighting for our democracy...Where EVERYONE should be treated equal...
No Such Agency: DrPainMD:Why would he want to do that? The day I got out of the service all my uniforms went into the garbage where they belonged.I hope you kept the boots. I wore mine all winter for years, saved me a lot of money.SnarfVader:"boat smell."Combination of industrial detergent, marine paint, oil and 100 other people's BO? Just guessing here.
The WindowLicker: Now this delicate snowflake is not even a Marine yet. Someone needs to forward this article on to his drill instructors at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot that he will be attending./Marine/
Rufus Lee King: The ceremony is for everyone in the graduating class; not just for him.
ADHD Librarian: I am always surprised by the special way Americans treat their marines.
Harry Freakstorm: [www.hudsonstarobserver.com image 330x450]Hudson High School Principal Laura Love. Looks like the cancellation of Scrubs devastated John C. McGinley.
ADHD Librarian: HotWingConspiracy: Attention whore denied prime whoring opportunity, turns to media to satiate whorish needs. Film at 11.As a non-American, this is how it seems to me, but I am always surprised by the special way Americans treat their marines. In this case it seems to me like the principal is still being a moran, if he allows Dress Blues, does that automatically mean he has to allow peekaboo nipple dresses?Mmmm, a problem here. A clash between American military worship and American zero tolerance. Can both sides lose?A question though, given that American schools have no uniform, is there usually a dress code at a graduation (and would a uniform clash with that uniform?)And, why would a principal need to know in advance what you plan to wear?
Public Savant: Can they make him wear tutu all through training?Please?
kayanlau: With that attitude, I don't see this boy making it through training.
Sybarite: Weaver95: We spend all that time and effort teaching kids to be mindless conformists, then expect them to be fully actualized adults once they graduate high school. We are a very strange society.We do? I thought we mostly expected them to be obedient citizen-workers who don't cause trouble and consume whatever shiny thing gets dangled in front of them.
SnarfVader: I couldn't get it out of my seabag.
