Weaver95: Rufus Lee King: The ceremony is for everyone in the graduating class; not just for him.I find this attitude extremely puzzling. Why this weird and obsessive urge towards conformity?
Weaver95: 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.You aren't a patriot. I'm sorry but you aren't. I know you like to think you are but I've never seen anything from you that would indicate that you understand what it means to be an American citizen. You ape the words and go thru the motions but that's it.
GT_Frog: In my day (1970), bootcamp was not the end of training. I had another 2 months of training after boot camp. That is if he isn't assigned mess duty before it's all over.
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?
Cheviot: It's a high school graduation. There is a uniform for high school graduations. It's a cap and gown. You wear the appropriate uniform for the event, not what you choose to wear.
SnarfVader: 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.He will be barely out of boot camp and most certainly not finished with his enlistment./My uncle threw all his uniforms into Puget Sound when he got out of the Navy back in the early 70's.//Since I was on subs, I got rid of mine when I got out because they had that "boat smell." I wasn't dragging that around in civilian life.///CSB
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.
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.
milowitz: School has rules and this guy is gonna have to follow a lot of rules when he's in the Core. Better start now.
awshat: I think subby needs to spend about 4 years in the military, and then, he might rethink his use of the "asinine" tag.
Schroedinger's Glory Hole: You aren't a soldier or marine until you get your MOS, sorry homey
JackieRabbit: Schroedinger's Glory Hole: You aren't a soldier or marine until you get your MOS, sorry homeyNot true at all. Once you swear (or affirm) your oath, you are a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.
p51d007: I'd tell that b*tch to kiss my a$$ & wear it anyway.
