    Queue predictable disparaging remarks from select posters against these universities and the choice to bring ROTC back.

    IMO, good step. Helps garner exposure for both sides to the military and to civilians. I think we will benefit in the long run from this.

    I'll keep my disparaging remarks at least thinly veiled.
    Seriously, this is a good thing. It will help expand the relatively underrepresented north-eastern demographic in the military, and bring in some very bright officers. Maybe it will even reduce some of the more uninformed views we have occasionally seen from those schools (remembering a quite ridiculous article from one).
