      Once again a young man who blames something else for his/hers faults. I am agnostic and never saw this discrimination at my school. I am glad he is not being forced to pay back the education he received nor will be forced to serve in the ranks for bailing out early. Yes I said bailing it out for that is what he did. He quit and used an excuse that hmm just does not pass the smell test. But hey make any excuse as that is what is the common reason these days for failure. I am writing this at a stop light so my grammar and such is crap. Bottom line, he quit on himself but hopefully he will have a better calling in life. Not everyone is cut out to be a soldier.
