Harvard University Plans to 'Welcome ROTC Back to Campus'
(CNSNews.com) - A four-decade standoff between Harvard University and the U.S. military is coming to an end, the Boston Globe reported on Tuesday.
Harvard will "welcome ROTC back to campus" now that Congress has repealed a ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military, university president Drew Faust said.
“I look forward to pursuing discussions with military officials and others to achieve Harvard’s full and formal recognition of ROTC," Faust, the daughter of a decorated World War II veteran, said in a written statement. “I am very pleased that more students will now have the opportunity to serve their country."
