A Navy wife is still puzzling over why she and her 7-year-old son were turned away from the commissary at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, because he was allegedly wearing “workout gear.”
A Marine posted outside the Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe Bay commissary recently told Laura Carothers no one wearing workout gear was allowed entry. “I said, ‘Even on a 7-year-old?’ ” said Carothers. “She said, ‘Yes, all ages.’ ”
A regulation is posted at the commissary warning that no workout gear is allowed in the store, Carothers said, with posters showing pictures about what is not allowed.
