I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this. I'm a first year teacher, but already I have realized how incredibly fortunate I am to have an administration that does stand behind their teachers. I'm also an Iraq war veteran's wife, who was applauded on the day she was hired... for my husband's service to our country. I think you did everything right, and am disgusted that your administrators bowed down to a parent who was so obviously in the wrong. Thank you for trying to do your best to show *respect* for our troops, and for trying to teach your students to do the same.
