“I am deeply saddened that the actions of our members ruined this special event and failed to show the respect our military and their families so deserve,” Bolotin said.
The incident occurred while the fraternity and veterans with the Warrior Beach Retreat were at the Laketown Wharf Resort last weekend. The veterans were there for an annual retreat meant to honor their service, and the fraternity had a social function.
Linda Cope, founder of the warrior group, says the frat members were drunk and insulted the veterans and stole their flags.
“They were urinating off of balconies, vomiting off of balconies. They could see the men and women below were there with the retreat. They had on hats and shirts with logos,” Cope said.
