Just when I thought some of these school administrators couldn’t get any more insane, I came across this headline. . .

“School won’t let student wear Marine Corps uniform at graduation”

And as students prepare to walk across the stage and accept their diplomas, seeing a young man in his marine uniform would not only be inspirational, but could even serve us motivation for other young people getting ready to head out into the world.
