Marine Stands Watch at Son’s School


A Nashville dad, who is also a marine, has taken it upon himself to stand guard at his kids’ school.

Staff Sgt. Jordan Pritchard is unarmed but believes the power of his uniform will deter anyone from trying to attack the school. He plans to keep guarding the school until at least Christmas break.

Other parents have remarked that they are happy to see him and feel better about the safety of their kids knowing he is there.

Would you be comforted by the sight of a man in uniform standing watch at your kid’s school, or do you think it has the potential to rattle kids? Do you think all schools should have uniformed guards in the wake of Sandy Hook? Leave a comment
