    Even though he is the commander in chief, there are some orders that even President Obama cannot give - as he found out today, much to the mirth of a put-upon U.S. Marine. Hosting Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Rose Garden today, the president requested a standing Marine to open an umbrella and protect his head from the light rain that was falling.

    The commander in chief of the American armed forces today forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet.

There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.

    Marine fights to wear dress blues at high school graduation April 10, 2009 Marine Pfc. Garrett Miles-McCarthy graduated from boot camp in San Diego only last month but he is already in his first battle: against his hometown school board. The 18-year-old wants to wear his dress blues uniform at his high school graduation ceremony in El Paso, Texas. He finished his coursework in December and immediately shipped out to Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. School officials have said no, that all grads have to wear cap and gown, no exceptions. The mayor, a local congressman and others are...
