We're working on it, we're working on it
OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today: "Lt. Cmdr. Scott Allen, public affairs officer for the Naval Service Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill., said applications to the Navy and Marine Corps ROTC programs around the country have increased by more than 12 percent each year since Sept. 11, 2001.
'Our numbers had been holding steady and then jumped 13.7 percent in the 2001-2002 academic year,' he said. 'In 2002-2003 we saw an additional 12.2 percent, and in 2003-2004 we increased another 16.8 percent.'
The numbers would no doubt be rising even faster if our elite universities would stop playing politics with national defense and let ROTC back on campus."

I'm now a part of two seperate campaigns to get ROTC back at Yale. And we've got a lot of support, so maybe it'll happen...
