Datlene, Just google his name + liar, or fake.
What I read is this man have been in the marine, but been what he claims. He've been asked to leave the school because marine are not authorized to wear military clothes out of their duty.

It doesnt matter. He is making the school children and parents feel safer.

The above link to the Huffington Post verified that he lied about his service record and he wore his uniform in public which is against Marine Corp policy so I understand why he's in a little trouble, but his intentions were honorable. I signed the petition. I don't believe he should be persecuted for what he did. I think that's taking it a bit far. A reprimand should be sufficient.

I'm concerned that so many don't see anything wrong that this former Marine and was never a Sgt and has never deployed.

We, in the military, have rules and regulations to work and live by. Our standards are higher than what civlians hold themselves to.

Kathleen, He is not a Sgt in the Marine Corps. In fact, he didn't finish his first year before being discharged. He never deployed, he never left the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. He violated uniform regulations. He is in trouble.

Jeffrey S Austin Thank you. I have been cursed six ways to Mexico trying to point this out. It got so bad I ended up erasing my comments. I feel better after reading your posts.

Because so few Americans have ever served in the military do they understand that the standards of conduct are firm and unwavering. But, every servicemember has the UCMJ, Uniform Code of Military Justice that protects the rights of each.

Jeffrey S Austin back in dark old days, when I was in, ( they used bayonets and horses then and the electronics had vacuum tubes) you didn't leave base in fatigues. They call them bdu's now I think, unless you went directly to your off base residence, no shopping, no stopping to fill up the gas tank, no nothing.

With all due respect. How will he protect this school? What's his plan if a nut shows up w/an automatic riffle?
His body and uniform will not stop a crazy armed person. Don't you think?

I signed the petition because I believe this guy was doing what he felt was necessary. However, reading some of the posts does raise the awareness of consequences of violating protocol. I stand by my decision for the very reason to hope help him get some mercy. He may now understand just how big the ripple would be felt throughout the US. Give him a chance.

Stephen Rivet

I sign the petition because I believ he feels he is doing the right thing. what any non military person needs to understand is he signed up for military voluntarily and the rules are the rules. he knew these rules and the reason for them. the military routinely asks men to sacrifice their lives for us. its an order that they give, to be followed without question. this rule is no different.

Sherry Cassatt Calamia

This is an outrage... why would they take someone like this and want to stripe him of his honor and the years he served for not wearing the correct uniform and then to put him in jail....this world is f**ked up in the worst way... he stood there all day to protect the children of the school on his time...no pay... he should be commended , bowed down to... PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD THAT CONTROL IT WAKE UP.
