Oh god, that poor child.

With all due respect, I am saddened to that the discussions are focusing more on his uniform and less on his sense of duty and the need for security in our schools. Don't get me wrong, I grew up in a house with a die-hard Marine and I understand the importance they place on structure and duty. I am simply saying that you guys are missing the bigger picture. If required, he should change the uniform.
However, the bigger picture here is we have lots of capable military members unable to find work. We have a need for security in our schools; judging from what I know of Marines, I can't think of more capable individuals.
We owe a great deal to all of you. I would love to see us band together and push for it to become standard to have an ex-military member in all elementary schools.
As for the uniform, Tthomas101 I will glady chip in as well.

We are so blessed to have this wonderful Marine protecting out kids. I know it is easier for me to go to work knowing he is in my daughter's school. Thank you Mr. Skok for giving us peace of mind.

Why would the Vindy post this woman's address? Great, now every thief in town knows which house is empty tonight. Good Grief Vindy! Sometimes, I think you people are just pretending to be journalists.

I think Gains has done a poor job. As a veteran prosecutor, he should be standing on his record. Why isn't he? I think we all know the answer.

Here's my measly two-cents. While, I think the texts were in poor taste for someone in his position, IF he did send the text I don't see it making him a racist. Instead he is one of many who forwarded that email.
Having said that, IF it is PROVEN that he sent that text, he loses my vote and his sign in my yard will be in the garbage.
Why? Certainly not because I think he's a racist, but rather because he lied by saying he didn't. Clinton lost my vote for the same reason--- LYING!
Until such time as it's proven, he has my vote. I sure hope he didn't lie, because god knows I don't want another term of Paul Gains.
