The Marine recruiter, who may or may not be qualified as a physical education teacher, had with him, a student who graduated last year from this small rural school, who has joined the Marines, as a designated "helper." The recruiter also had a senior student from this school who appears to be a Marine recruit, as this is the second time he has worn his Marines t-shirt and "helped."
The PE teacher from the school told kids that if they did not want to participate, that they could sit out. Several girls went to sit on the grass.
The Marine recruiter handed out a "waiver" for the children to sign, in case they were to get injured.
