An Army Reservist who was barred from walking at graduation got his own ceremony and personally handed a diploma from the principal.
Hundreds of people showed up to Harlan Fletcher’s personal graduation ceremony after he was kept from walking at his own graduation because he was wearing his military uniform.
Harlan was pulled out of line during graduation for wearing his military uniform due to a dress code policy from the school. The dress code policy, according to Fox and Friends, is being revised. Harlan Fletcher isn’t the only member of the military who wasn’t allowed to walk at graduation. A Marine wasn’t allowed to walk at graduation because he was wearing his uniform and the internet was outraged.
Many people on Twitter supported the young reservist.
Proof there are still millions of Americans who respect and honor what's right.

How can a school bar a military uniform? That's messed up!
