Am I Wrong About This One?

Michael Lueking has a good reason for standing tall and proud- he recently completed USMC boot camp, and tonight is his high school graduation. Life is good... mostly.

He wants to wear his dress blues to the graduation ceremony, but the school told him that he would have to wear the traditional cap and gown if he wants to walk across the stage to receive his diploma.

Am I the only one who thinks he should wear the cap and gown? I know he's proud of that uniform, and he should be. But I thought that the Marines taught recruits about discipline and order and adherence to rules and authority. This isn't about patriotism or a lack thereof. It's about the rules and whether or not exceptions should be made.

If it is school policy that graduates wear caps and gowns, then so be it.
