GENERAL INFORMATION

Welcome to the Military Science/ROTC online subject guide!


A "cross-town" agreement between the University of Delaware and Salisbury University provides the opportunity for SU students to participate in the University of Delaware Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) program, now with most classes held on the SU Campus.

This program provides students the opportunity to take courses in leadership and management through the University of Delaware and as electives to an SU degree. As enrollment targets are met, these courses are being offered on the SU campus for SU credit. Information regarding the program can be found on the University of Delaware Web site at www.udel.edu/armyrotc or from the SU Provost’s Office at 410-543-6020.

About Me: I am a research librarian and the librarian liaison to ROTC/Military Science.  My purpose is to help you find what library resources you need and to help you save time in doing your research.

While my picture may not reflect it, I come from a military background.

My father was in the U.S. Army for 33 years, reaching the rank of full colonel. During his time in the service he served in combat in the Pacfic during WWII and much later was Chief of Staff of MAAG Vietnam in Saigon from 1959-1961.
I accompanied him there and elsewhere as a military dependent.

Later on I was in the USAF from 1966-1969, getting an early out in December 1969 to go back to college.

During my time in service, I served in Thailand with the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing known as the “Wolf Pack” under Colonel Robin Olds, a well-respected fighter ace from WWII.  

Our unit was bombing targets in North Vietnam and along the Ho Chi Minh Trail and our F4’s also served as MigCaps escorting F-105s on their bombing missions. Our unit was credited with the most Mig Kills of any unit in the USAF during the Vietnam War and later received the President Unit Citation.  I was a munitions driver working on the flight line servicing these aircraft. [see below]

So being an “Army Brat” and later a serviceman in the USAF, I do have some background in the military culture, although it was a long time ago.  

And I do appreciate the sacrifices you make when you join the service, and I wish you good luck with your career!
