On 24 Mar 1943 the US Army Air Corps base in In Iceland was posthumously named for him as the Meeks Air Field. The source for this is attached. The website is Pressan.is and the attached is a translation of the Icelandic.

The base later became a US Naval Air Station and remained as such until about 2006 when the based was closed the field was transferred to Iceland. Today that field is the Keflavik International Airport.
