All the names are in, with corrections for Dakota's JAIS teammates

Comments below about: JAIS Yearbook class photo with Dakota Meyer

Thanks to great interest in the ca 2000 John Adair School yearbook picture discovered by Principal Jane Branham and included in an Adair County School District story by Alan Reed, all the names are now included, and we hope, correct and in the right order.

Wow! What a fine group of young men they've turned out to be!

The world knows Dakota Meyer. There are others, we've found, who are in the Marines today.

Sally Kemp sent a reminder that Les Cook is also a United States Marine!

The first information posted noted that Daniel Kermeen, is now a Marine.

And "Kelly" wrote to note that there was a mistake - as did Jennifer Smith, who did such a masterful job with the initial identifications - that "Josh" Streeval, is, in fact, Jerry Streeval, and added that he is actually in the National Guard and is now serving in Iraq.

Janet Hutchison sent a note that the full name of the Hale boy is "Nick Hale." She said, "All these guys were also classmates of my son Daniel.

Cindy Burton also reminded us that young "Hale" is Nick hale, the son of Pam (Feese) Hale - she couldn't remember Nick's father's name, but they live on Ky 26, and that his stalwart Adair County ancestry includes the fact that he is the grandson of Norrine and the late Clem Feese. She says she used to attend church with this fine yourng man, many many years ago at Charity Baptist , and that Nick went on to work as a deputy sheriff, she thinks in Pulaski County.

Thanks to all who helped. Any additional information on the other boys in that decade old yearbook photo would be appreciated. Send comments using the Contact Form with this story. -CM
