Pittsburgh Marine Not Allowed To Wear Uniform To High School Graduation

06.10.11 |

Lindsay Starr -- a 17-year old Pennsylvania girl who graduated high school a year early, joined the marines and finished boot camp -- is returning for graduation this month. However, she will not be allowed to wear her dress blues for the ceremony. The Pittsburgh-area schools told Starr that requests by student soldiers to wear special clothing at graduation have been made before, and the answer is no. The school is sticking to protocol and requring that Starr show up in her cap and gown in proper school colors.
