The Role of ROTC in the Vietnam War

Other campuses experienced intense debates about the role students should take in the war. The Reserve Office Training Corps, or ROTC, became the focus both for those who supported and those who opposed American involvement in Vietnam, and some college administrations were forced to drop ROTC to avoid violent confrontation. Here, the issue of ROTC is debated on a Newberry College bulletin board in 1970.
