Jill”s Take:Harvard Let’s ROTC Back on Campus
Repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, opens the door again to recruiting. I am glad this policy has been finally overturned.
Harvard University is welcoming the Reserve Officer Training Corps program back to campus this week, 41 years after banishing it amid dissent over the Vietnam War. The Cambridge, Mass., school’s change in policy follows the decision by Congress in December to repeal the military ban on gays serving openly, an official familiar with the arrangement said Thursday. But after Congress cleared the way for the repeal of the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell,” policy in December, Harvard’s president said she’d work toward ROTC’s return.
