Washington, D.C. --- U.S. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous decision allowing military recruiters equal access to colleges and universities that accept federal funding:
“It’s good to hear a voice of support for the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Hunter.
“While Americans in uniform are engaged around the world in the global war on terror, the idea that academic elites would bar military recruiters from campus runs against the very ethos of patriotism,” continued Hunter.
