ROTC Again

March 10th, 2009

In the January/February Obituaries, the classes from 1942 to 1949 include thirteen alumni who served in the armed forces during World War II. They are a reminder that members of the NROTC participated in such World War II turning points as the Normandy invasion and the storming of Okinawa.

I fully support the positions of Martin T. Velazquez '94 ("Glorifying Old Glory," Mail Room, November/December) and George D. Tidd '60 (Mail Room, January/February). For Brown to refuse to support our government by denying the entry of our armed forces to campus and refusing to reestablish NROTC is an absolute disgrace. Our country's safety and security, as well as the principles of our freedom, should be a part of the University's continuing commitment.
