In another devastating story about the mistreatment of our veterans, Six Flags is being accused of reducing a wounded veteran to tears in front of his daughter after refusing to allow him on a ride at the amusement park. The veteran was not allowed to accompany his 14-year-old daughter on the ride, and when he asked for a refund, the theme park refused!
A military veteran who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan says he was reduced to tears when a Texas Six Flags refused to allow him to accompany his 14-year-old daughter on a ride.
Sgt. Stephen Jackel told KMOV-TV that he was told by the amusement park he was not permitted to go on the ride because their policy states individuals must have one functional leg and arm.
Six Flags insists the policy is in place for safety reasons.
However, Jackel — who uses two prosthetic legs — insists park personnel never informed him of the policy when he purchased his tickets.
Further, the veteran adds that when he simply asked for a refund, he was denied. According to him, Six Flags would only offer him complimentary tickets for another day, something he says is useless.
