Marine Vet Suspended from Mississippi College – Labeled ‘Threat’ After Requesting Non-Muslim Counselor

Jeremy Rawls, a senior at Mississippi College and former active-duty Marine who served two combat tours in Iraq was suspended by the school administration after he requested to meet with a non-Muslim counselor.
Rawls has been diagnosed with combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and was assigned to a female counselor that wore traditional Muslim clothing.

In an interview with Campus Reform, Rawls said, “It’s not that I didn’t want to participate… I didn’t want to traumatize her and it wasn’t a good environment to be talking about [my disabilities] with that specific person.”

Originally, Rawls was to pick up paperwork from the college’s Office of Counseling and Disability Services for his professors, and he tried to meet with faculty to talk about changing counselors. Rawls’ attempts were repeatedly ignored until recently.
