This might only be news in our little corner of the world, but it's an interesting story. A young Marine, Michael Lueking had to stand on the sidelines and watch his classmates graduate because his high school wouldn't let him wear his uniform.
Now this was obviously not a slacker, or a trouble-making student. This kid worked to graduate a semester early, joined the Marines and, rightly so, is proud of his USMC choice and the uniform that symbolizes so much. Obviously some at his school -- just dont' get it.
So where's the ACLU on this one? I think school officials overreacted, and it would not have in any way diminished the graduation. It's not like he wanted to graduate in his football uniform. What do ya'll think?
