Students chastised for wearing marine uniforms at Marshall HS graduation

MARSHALL, Mich. (AP) — Two high school graduates in southern Michigan have been chastised by their principal and a school board member for wearing Marine dress uniforms during commencement.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports Tuesday that the Marshall High School students decided not to wear their caps and gowns for Sunday’s ceremony.

District superintendent Randy Davis says they were allowed to participate in order to avoid disappointing their families who earlier were told caps and gowns were required.

Marine spokesman 1st Lt. William Tunney identified the graduates as Pfc. Willie Couch and Pfc. Samuel Hackworth. He tells The Associated Press that they met high school graduation requirements to attend Marine recruit training.

Tunney says they graduated Friday from recruit training and are to report Monday to Infantry school in North Carolina for continued combat training.

      They are 100%. I had an instructor in High School tell me and an entire class that only losers and people not smart enough for college go into the military. The teacher’s name name was Bullock at Lansing Everett HS, and he was an open and loudly proud Liberal and routinely did everything he could to spread his lib agenda. My 8th grade Son just earlier this year, IN HIS SCHOOL, heard nearly the same thing from two of his teachers.

    These students deserve respect for their commitment to the country. Thank God they are not going on to the left’s further indoctrination at a college or university where they could aspire to be leftist snowflakes. We have a big problem in our education system.
