I understand it this way...the district created this "cap and gown only" policy so that they could reject the request from the US Marine to wear his uniform at HIS HS graduation?

they said that they weren't against the military they were for education. Geez, I learned a lot in the military(navy) about the real world that school never taught me. They are not educated enough to know shame, obviously.

Where as I'm proud of this young man for his service to his country, this issue is about graduation from high school. All wear the cap and gown, all equal.

This thing smacks of an ego trip on his part.
