We’ve had all kinds of campaigns for funds for worthy causes, but never one like this. Washington Chapter 324 of the Korean War Veterans Association has mounted a drive to raise money for the new Naval Junior ROTC program that will begin next school year at Washington High School.

You might say, why doesn’t the Navy provide the uniforms? Cutbacks in funding for our military branches have prevented the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Maritime Service from conducting some of the programs they were able to do in the past. The Navy has agreed to begin the program at WHS but the school district will be required to finance more of the program than was necessary at other high schools in the past. The district has to provide the facilities, qualified instructors with military experience, and to pay at least part of the cost of uniforms.
