    Jeff next time we meet I will have to ask where on 74 as had no idea about your Uncle. Few years back was at a POW MIA ceremony at Hanover Post. Part of ceremony is recognize one of them and tell their story. Jaw dropper when heard my cousins finances name and realized his parents were there. Didn’t know they were from York County. yeah off topic.... sue me...

    My immediate would have been to tell her loudly (for everyone’s benefit) “would have done for a man too if his arms were full”. Then to the clerk just one word “MANAGER “. As my dad would say “some people are just ######## and don’t run your life for them”.

    First step at work is tell the person making the comments to stop. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that then get a supervisor or other person to say it for you. Then if they don’t stop they are letting themselves open for legal action. point is everyone has a different level of what is sexual harassment so person making the comment might not be aware it is unwelcome. Protects both sides.... Idea that only one thing said and you are in court or fired, don’t believe it either

    I disagree with the booing and hissing too so I don’t understand either. I’m more of a “time for a bathroom break” guy myself which I have done for some corps for other reasons. In this case I say they had a right to put on the show and I would have the right not to watch. To be clear when I said they should have expected controversy I did not mean people should have booed. Reason is that takes away the right of the people who wanted to see the show

    Yes everyone is affected by things differently which also makes the what is objectionable issue impossible to quantify. (Snipping long boring bit from my annual sexual harassment training about differing opinions biting you in the ...)

    Didn’t see the show but my thought was way too close to end of the war not to expect negative reactions. And not thinking VFW or AL members as much as families that were affected (including Jeff’s). My bias shows that way as cousins finance is still MIA and war ended when I was in High School (way too close for comfort). And working with and getting to know a Vietnamese refugee family. IOW touchy subject to try to get entertainment from.

    Try doing something outside of work with someone who works in your building. “I’d like to say how nice you look but you could write my ### up.... so I won’t “..... 😋

    I was thinking of it was a call for turning back the clock on color guard. Full uniforms so bodies covered up and no vocals so no metoo squawking

    One of the DCA Class A Texas corps did a 1968 style show about 10 years back. Will have to look to see if that was controversial. Only remember tie dyed shirts and the mini corps (different name?) played some Friday night.

    Ok how is a young person saying “pervert” about an older person in a parking lot the fault of the show design? I’m probably close to that older person in age and have experienced that “oh crap” look when I approach younger people at work (and other places) who don’t know me. Or to put the question better how do you “know” this is the one and only reason. well time for bed as us old people need our sleep to keep up with the yungins.
  14. I can dig that. And local face showing can keep them open. Good chance to show the “Not the old YEA/Cadets crew anymore”...
  15. Keeping those ties.... or rebuilding from the damage to those ties???? Thinking local presence would be like showing that things have changed but same Cadets as in corps quality. IOW can have a quality corps without seeing or hearing you know who
