A national tour featuring decorated veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan won't be stopping at Forest Lake Area High School today as planned, after school leaders abruptly canceled the visit.
Steve Massey, the school principal, said the decision to cancel was prompted by concerns that the event was becoming political rather than educational and therefore was not suitable for a public school.
Lots of pictures, video and audio--all anyone has to do is "log on" to find out what's happening in the many places around the world that our brave men and women are serving the folks back home, and helping to pass the flame of democracy to those who yearn to be free.
Don't expect to get much information from the guy who uttered the almost meaningless sentiment above--go to the source and educate your self.
