This is Important for All My Friends in the Lake Havasu City Area! This is a Letter from a Friend of mine who's Son, A Serving Marine, was denied access to the LHC Graduation for fear he might hand out a Recruitment card! Is this LHC or is it Berkley CA? sgtcowboyusmc THE LIBERALS THAT HAVECONTROL OF OUR CHILDREN ARE COMPLETE IDIOTS!! ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE TEACHERS MISGUIDANCE. BUT AS YOU SEE THIS EXAMPLE IS HERE AT HOME. IT IS NOT AWAY SOMEPLACE, THEY ARE ALL AROUND US. MAYBE THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED IF WE HAD PASSED THE LAST OVERRIDE? HA! Sent: Sat, May 26, 2012 8:17:39 PM On Thursday, May 24th, 2012, a Marine here in Lake Havasu City on "ORDERS" to do Recruiter Assistance, was told to attend the Lake Havasu High School Graduation to honor 3 brave young graduates that have enlisted into the Marine Corps. This Marine was denied entry to the Lake Havasu High School graduation. First reason was that he had no ticket to enter. A Veteran in the stands had an extra ticket and gave it to this Marine, he was still denied entry. The reason given that he could not enter was that in previous years they had problems with Recruiters giving out cards at the graduation. This Marine stated that he had no literature but was there only to honor the three young men and was still denied entry on "Principle". The gate keeper with the last name beginning with "M" and a man that refused to give his name, were rude and disrespectful of this Marine who is also a nine year alumni of Lake Havasu High School. What kind of principle could possibly keep an Honorably Serving Active Duty Marine from honoring three brave young men? Where on earth has common sense gone? How on earth does Lake Havasu City ever hope to become the "Most Patriotic City in the Nation" with behavior like this? Guests of the graduation were irritated and upset that this was occurring. This Marine calmed the people down and waited in the Parking Lot with the Police Officers on duty while calls were made for over 45 minutes. An officer of the Police Department was very helpful in getting this Marine into the graduation ceremony. Once in, many of the teachers and were shocked that such disrespectful treatment of one of their former students occurred. The night before, this Marine attended the River Valley graduation at the AVI and was respectfully welcomed and thanked for his service. My husband was very upset and contacted the Lake Havasu High School office the Friday morning and spoke to a secretary. He told her about what happened the night before, and she said she had heard all about it and defended the actions that occurred, because of past recruiters and said she'd pass it on to the principal. This Marine is MY SON! Perhaps I am too close to the situation, but this just pisses me off. My son said he just got a very small taste of what our beloved Viet Nam Veterans experienced. Please pass this on if you feel strongly about this. Respectfully, Laura Tusa President Blue Star Mothers If you don't stand behind our troops, please feel free to stand in front of them!
