Take pride in uniform To the editor: The other day I was out shopping for food, as were many other fine people, when I crossed paths with a young man wearing his work clothes out in public. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but you see, this gentleman was a correctional officer. It wasn't the fact that he was wearing his uniform out in public, but how he was wearing it. This gentleman had his shirt completely out of his trousers and unbuttoned all the way. He also had his hat tilted to the side of his head.

It was the most money collected in any year since the cadets took up supporting the Jefferson County Shoe and Coat Fund in 2004. Over the seven years they have raised nearly $30,000, school Principal Howard Guth said. "Their commitment to this is incredible," Guth said.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Needy children will get a boost during the holiday season thanks to more than $4,000 that was raised for them by the Jefferson High School Air Force Junior ROTC program. The Junior ROTC students started an annual fundraiser for the Jefferson County Shoe and Coat Fund four years ago, and it has evolved into a competition between the students, said William Poe, who helps lead the program. Between class periods and after school, Junior ROTC students compete to see how much money they can collect from businesses and individuals, and some students go door to door to seek donations, Poe said.

The program has been recognized by the U.S. Air Force with the Distinguished Unit Award, Master Sgt. Will Poe said. Poe, the group's instructor, said only 10 percent of the 745 Air Force Junior ROTC programs in the nation achieve the Distinguished Unit Award. Poe said that earning the award speaks well of the hard work of the cadets, the support of school administrators and faculty, and of his fellow instructor, Maj. Charles Gray.
