1957 in my ROTC uniform

I am not a veteran.

At MIT ROTC was compulsory for freshman and sophomores. This icon is me in my uniform.

We marched with M1 rifles, I think we fired them once or twice; we listened to military history lectures; learned how to clean an M1; learned how to polish the brass.
