Soldiers with guns 'inappropriate' decoration for elementary school cupcakes

There are 1 comment on the American Thinker story from Mar 9, 2013, titled Soldiers with guns 'inappropriate' decoration for elementary school cupcakes. In it, American Thinker reports that:

One would imagine soldiers without guns would be just fine. Of course, a disarmed military couldn't fight very well, but who's worried about that? The principle at Schall Elementary School in Caro, Michigan objected when a 9 year old boy brought cupcakes for his classmates decorated with toy soldiers.

Below is an email I sent to the principal of Schall Elementry School:


Dear Ms Wright,

I am saddened by the message that you are sending to our children...that soldiers are much like murdering misfits that kill children.

My father served in WWII and the Korean War, I am a Viet Nam era and Desert Storm veteran, and my son served four combat tours in Bahgdad and Afghanistan. Maybe I'm biased, but I am offended that you, whom I and my family have served loyally for over three generations, would lead your students to associate American service men with the likes of a pshychopathic killer.

I wonder at times why American children seen to have lost sight of their roots, their heritage, and their souls...but when I hear of thoughtless acts, like you demanding a child to remove toy soldier decorations from some cupcakes, I can understand why the kids of today so are confused.

I invite your reply.

Yours truly,
Mark Mitchell
