    Arkansas teen rejected by Marines for 'Southern Pride' Confederate flag tattoo

    Anthony Bauswell was unable to enlist in the Marines because of his Confederate flag tattoo, he says.
    An Arkansas teen said he was turned down by the Marines because of his "Southern Pride" Confederate flag tattoo.
    Anthony Bauswell, 18, of Greenbrier, Ark., said as soon as the recruiter saw the body art on Monday, he said "DQ, just automatically DQ," according to KARK.
    "I felt pretty low," Bauswell told the station. "My own government wasn't going to let me serve my country because of the ink on my skin."
    The Daily News was referred to the Marines Corps Recruiting Command, which could not immediately be reached for comment. However, the Corps' tattoo policy states that body art that is "sexist, racist, eccentric or offensive in nature" is not allowed.

    Bauswell's 'Southern Pride' Confederate flag tattoo.
    "I definitely don't want it to be seen as racism, which is 99% of the reason I got southern pride on it," Bauswell told KARK.
    According to a CNN/ORC poll this summer, 57% of Americans feel the Confederate flag is a symbol of Southern pride rather than a symbol of racism. However, 72% of blacks polled said the flag is racist.
    The Corps is actually expected to update its tattoo policy soon to make it clearer to those who serve.

    The tattoo apparently kept him from joining the Marines.
    "Having talked to them, I don’t think most Marines understand what the policy is," Commandant Gen. Robert Neller told the Marine Corps Times on Wednesday. "I don’t think they understand what they can do. They just know they can’t get a sleeve.”
    The new policy will not likely impact Bauswell, who now feels like his future is in limbo.
    "I kind of felt like I had a plan for my life, and now that I can't go, I am not sure where I stand," he told KARK.

    This can't be true...they often scrape the bottom of the barrel for USMC recruits, it is where they send the ones that need to turn lives around. Note, I don't mean all USMC recruit are bad, just that they accept some really bad ones.

    They probably just lost a good Marine by rejecting him.

    A man dressing up as a woman = Good.
    A man sucking another mans cock = Good.
    Tattoo of Southern Pride = Bad.

    Thanks obama :uhat:

    Our military is far from what it once was. Over in the Palin PTSD thread, the libs are quoting veterans who are openly liberal activists and have no common sense what so ever.

    The order now is something like:

    Navy
    Marines
    Army
    Air Force

    The Air Force is just like being a civilian and full of just as many fuck ups.

    Seems to me like southern rednecks would make the best soldiers.

    What's wrong with the Confederate flag? For that matter, what did the Confederacy do that was not allowed by the Constitution? TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION. But Lincoln, like a psycho boyfriend, insisted IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU NO ONE WILL... that was one long bloody conflict.

    One of my best friends is a Marine. He's a colonel. A group of us were talking and a guy we didn't know chimed in "I was in the service! I was in the Air Force!" The Colonel said "The service? Christ pal, that's Junior Varsity."

    At what point was he rejected? Did he make it all the way to MEPS and get stopped there or was it a recruiter who dismissed him during a visit? If it was the latter, he should have just gone to a different recruitment station.

    I support him having the tatt, but being rejected might have saved his life.

    I know a bunch of doctors that were in the Air Force. They said their basic training consisted of learning how to salute.
