Marines Vs UAW Resolved.

Read this First: Support the troops. (only if they agree with you)

BlackFive reports:
The US Marine Corps Reserve Battalion Commander had already made the decision to not allow any drilling Marine Reservists to park in the UAW lot - he thinks it's "parking silliness" and his Marines need to "focus on more important things". He's right, of course. His Marines are training for their next deployment.

Then, after thinking the issue settled this morning, the CO receives a call from UAW President Ron Gettelfinger (a former Marine) who told him that he just reversed the policy.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Marines refuse to park there.

The UAW is run by a Marine! How funny! Its also good to the rest of the unit supports thier battle buddies by not parking there.

It just goes to show how strong the brotherhood of arms is. Good Job Mr. Gettelfinger. That doesn't mean I like Unions any more than I did before this.

I am glad to see this was worked out no matter where the Marines park.
