LETTER: Veterans Welcome ROTC Back

By Thomas P. Reardon

We certainly welcome the opinion and tone of The Crimson Staff in its editorial "The Return of ROTC". ROTC has been an option for undergraduates since its arrival on campus in 1915, however it is but one element of the long, proud history of service and sacrifice in the U.S. military by more than 10 generations of Harvard men and women. One example is the fact that more than 150 Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are currently students at our graduate schools. Indeed, we commend Harvard’s decision and The Crimson’s subsequent reaction.
