If you have a group of active military veterans, it's easier to find a "spot" to belong

It’s not likely that any of the Columbia University sponsors will read this, but I’ll stick it up here anyway. Here's some Columbia University history for you!
My father went to the U.S. Naval Reserve Midshipmen's School (officer training) in NYC in 1944. Due to the rapid growth of the school, by MAR43, a great deal of the activity and classwork was relocated from an inadequate Navy facility to Columbia University. This photo shows midshipmen (officer trainees) playing baseball in the area that is now part of the beautiful College Walk on the Morningside Campus. Low Memorial Library is shown to the right and Earl Hall is the domed building in the center rear with the tower of Riverside Church behind, so the batter is facing almost north-northwest. Although my father played college and pro baseball before entering the Navy, he's not one of those in the photo!

Join nearly 2 million former and current members of the US military, just like you.
