Is this inappropriate to wear a JROTC military ball?

My date and I are going to the military ball in two days, my dress is navy blue and goes two inches above my knee, not to mention we have been nominated to be King and Queen; I have never been to one of these before, but from what the other girls are saying I have gotten a bit (A LOT) nervous.

extras: I'm 5'0

    JROTC is NOT the military. It is a bunch of high school kids who want to look cool in a uniform. You may wear a sequence jumpsuit for all I care

    Well you might want to make it a way longer , that's a formal occasion so you might want to go with a ball gown that hits the floor and high heels ( any length ) maybe even 6 in if you can walk in them . If you do win and go on stage with a dress that short everyone will have to bow there head ( and not because your queen ) lol , so yea , don't be nervous , it's more formal then say homecoming where all the girls are wearing cute little short dresses .

    And how prey-tell are you going to sit properly in a dress that is above your knees, everyone is going to see your underwear or hoochi. This is an inproper dress to wear with a bunch of immature teens boys around.

    get a longer dress- it might be a high school dance but ask yourself if you any photos were posted on line or in the year book- do you want folks to say- that you looked nice or you looked a tad skanky.

    You are representing the other girls so don't make them look bad.

    It's 2 inches above the knee, not 5. Don't worry about it. You're fine. Stop worrying about proper protocol from other people. Of it wasn't on the invitation and your date matches your dress, then enjoy yourself and have a good time.

    Usually military balls are supposed to be classy. If possible I would go with a longer dress, it is much more appropriate. That being said I have seen lots of women who dress real skanky at these balls, idk where guys find these women lol. Overall, your dress is probably not a big deal but I'd go with a long one if you have another.
