Citing federal regulations, the Missouri National Guard has refused to show up for an hour-long meet-and-greet with kids at a small Baptist church in the rural southwest corner of the state.
The kerfuffle went down during this summer’s vacation Bible school at Bible Baptist Church in Carthage, Missouri, reports Fox News.
Vacation Bible school is sort of a rite of passage in the region — as common locally in the summertime as fireworks on the Fourth of July and sticky, sunny days.
