Lead Story From CHINFO - Columbia University recognizes NROTC on campus
Columbia has reached an agreement with the U.S. Navy to officially recognize a Naval ROTC program on campus, University President Lee Bollinger said in a statement. The Reserve Officers' Training Corps has not been recognized by Columbia since 1969, when protests over the Vietnam War led to the elimination of Columbia's longstanding NROTC program. Bollinger told Spectator that the agreement is a “historic turning point” for the University.
Now that Columbia has decided that Naval ROTC is good enough for the campus - I really wonder if the Columbia campus is good enough for the U.S. Navy. I don't think so.
