Yesterday morning, Army ROTC cadets reported for duty at Harvard University—for the first time in 40 years. The ROTC left Harvard, along with three other Ivy League schools, after campus protests during the Vietnam War; in the decades following, relations between the military and Harvard remained tense due to policies regarding gay soldiers. But when Drew Gilpin Faust, whose family has a tradition of serving in the military, became president of the university in 2007, she was determined to bring the ROTC back.
