    I would like to commend the parents, teachers and students of WHS for taking up for their Col and his students. As a proud veteran myself it was a Col in JROTC at Creswell High back in the late 90's that helped to shape and mold me the same way that Col. Meeks does for these young men and women. Perfectly pressed uniform or not these young men and women have steped up to a higher calling than the average student, and if they know it or not now they will carry the lesssons that they have learned from the Col. and JROTC with them the rest of their lives. So Naut I salute you as a fellow vet but I also ask you to step back and look at the big picture first before starting to critisize with something crazy like that. Great job cadets, keep up the great work, and their is no greater honor when you graduate than serving your country. God Bless the USA! Cory Furlough www.coryfurlough.com

    Attention nauti1, I assure you Colonel Meeks is at the top of his game. Maybe you should walk a mile in his shoes before you so quickly judge him. This teacher should get nothing but respect from the community for his commitment to the cadents of Washington High School.

    nauti1, Col Meeks is diligent teacher that is committed to the success of his students. You should get to know him and his students before you judge them. WHS is blessed to have such a man molding our young men and women.

    I agree with the WHS Teacher's comments. Colonel Meeks is a hard working, dedicated teacher and great role model for his students. He has taught my son so much in the past three years. He is loved by his students and their parents alike. My son was honnored to be able to go on a JROTC trip with him this past summer to visit our Nation's capital and all of the historic sites in Washington D.C. He learned more about the history of our country and the high price that our soldiers pay and our veterans have paid for our freedom than he will ever learn in a history book. Cononel Meeks is a great asset to Washington High School and this community. I am thankful he is a part of my son's life in these impressionable teenage years. As for their uniforms, nauti1, the students had wore them all day at school on Friday. They are required to wear them once a week for inspection as well as to many other school functions. It's not as if they freshly put them on just to wear to the parade that day.

    This comment is for nauti1. I am thankful for your service as a Veteran of our country. Instead of publicly criticizing Col. Meeks, maybe you should do some investigating about exactly what he has been doing with the JROTC program at WHS. For the last 8 weeks of school, Col. Meeks has operated a full JROTC program without a second instructor. He has taught all JROTC classes alone - with no planning period. That means, he has been two people for 8 weeks. He arrives to school early, conducts classes, gives up a daily planning period, and then stays after school to run drill practices. Those students work very hard to earn the privilege to wear those uniforms. Maybe you should go to the school and volunteer your expert services until the second JROTC teacher starts next month and help your fellow Veteran out, rather than criticize him. I have never seen a JROTC student in a a wrinkled uniform. Col. Meeks, you do a wonderful job with our students, and we commend you for your service!

    as a veteran it was sad to the jrotc in unironed uniforms. and they could not even keep a cadence. seems the teacher needs to step up his game a little and show the kids the right way.

    We always enjoy the WHS parade downtown. The floats are very well-done and shows the creativity of the students. I especially liked the viking float! Win the game tonight, Pack!!! The band should play songs along the parade route so that people on Market street as well as Main street can hear them as well as see them. Maybe a medley of popular music.
