Dear Members of the Bloomer School Board,
I hope there is still time to change the boards decision to not allow this young defender of America the privilege of wearing the Marine Corps uniform to his graduation. As a former student and Marine Corps veteran I can assure you that this is an extremely important opportunity for you to show your students and the watching world that exceptions can be made for exceptional Americans. Especially those willing to lay down their lives for their country.
Respectfully,
Richard Woodley
U.S.M.C. Veteran
