Absurd Government Privileges

Standard

Planning a wedding is the cause for sleepless nights, anxiety attacks and endless shopping and venue searching. Skout of course is no stranger to what comes with wedding plans.It is not easy to create a memorable experience to last a lifetime or find the location that best represents both the bride and groom. However, one couples venue was stolen from under their feet and had no choice but to give it up.

According to an article that can be found onĀ http://www.buzzfeed.com/davidmack/kaneohe-kerfuffle#.thMV5D013,a couple was told of the drastic change 24 hours before the wedding. U.S. Captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. had invited the president to the wedding which he declined and in turn went on to requesting that they hold their event at another location, because he wanted to golf!! The couple quickly changed the venue.

This story may seem so ridiculous as to why we cater to the needs of a president instead of honoring the event already planned. The couple not only have given their time and full preparation of this, but they deserve much more for serving a country and leader that has asked them to without complaint. Does the leader of this country ignore such rights and believe his need to indulge in golfing is above that of a wedding? I know many a bride that would be completely enraged with the childish request! Is this what our soldiers are fighting for, freedom to golf? If so bring them back!
