Something about this just reeks socialist malice on the part of the college administration:

Carl Basham said officials at Austin Community College recently told him that he lost his Texas resident's status because of the years he spent out of state on two tours of duty in Iraq.

Not having the in-state designation would mean paying around $2600 a semester in tuition, instead of about $500.

Perhaps the Marine Corps could send down an amtrack (painted black with DELTA TAU CHI DEATHMOBILE in big red letters) with a full load of drill instructors to straighten out the relevant administrators.

This is only a suggestion.

Hello? Have those socialist bastards ever heard of the Soliders and Sailors Act?

Ouuuuuh! Forgot about that.

Another suggestion: Bolt to bow of the amtrack the head of a statue of Marx, Lenin, or Saddam. Vietnam era veterans like R. Lee Ermey could use the head of Ho Chi Mihn.
