In recognition of the return of ROTC to campus, our primary speaker will be Major General John Hyten ’81, who attended the College on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. We will also remember Harvard’s 17 Medal Of Honor recipients, and salute all of the University’s veterans and military personnel, especially those on assignment around the world. We encourage the wearing of dress uniforms for the occasion. Please address questions or comment to [email protected]
