In Obama’s America the United States military is the enemy apparently. Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker is a high ranking military officer who wanted to just pickup his daughter from school and was told he would have to change out of his uniform. That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.
The security guard told him his uniform may offend students. Which students? Muslims? I would like to know who is offended by the US military uniform.
Sherwood, who has served in the Army for 24 years, was told by Rochester Adams High School security that if he wanted to get into the school with his daughter he was going to have to go home and change his clothes.
Baker’s wife Rachel Ferhadson says, “Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said sorry you’re not allowed in the school. Security told him men and women in uniform weren’t allowed because it may offend another student.”
Baker says he was simply coming to the school to speak with his daughter’s counselor regarding her class schedule but was turned away at the doors because he was not wearing a tie.
Rochester Schools superintendent Robert Shaner, who is a veteran himself, quickly took care of the situation apologizing to the family for their troubles.
Shaner sent a letter to Fox 2 which says: “The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school. The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”
The Baker family has scheduled a meeting with the principal of Rochester Adams High School in the coming days.
