The President's Challenge on ROTC
from the State of the Union Address:
[ . . . ]OYE Comment:
Our troops come from every corner of this country -– they’re black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American. They are Christian and Hindu, Jewish and Muslim. And, yes, we know that some of them are gay. Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love. (Applause.) And with that change, I call on all our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and ROTC. It is time to leave behind the divisive battles of the past. It is time to move forward as one nation. (Applause.) [ . . . ]
O.K., Harvard, Yale, Columbia, etc. 'Time for your decision.
Update: Harvard has welcomed ROTC; Columbia has changed its policy and is open to discussions. We hope the Pentagon will respond positively.
