    Would there be a possibility we can provide a link to our Campus Activities and Veterans Affairs Office at SHIP?

    Thanks

      Tom,
      We can post a link to the Veterans Affairs office only. Also, do you have an ROTC at Ship? If so we can post that link also under our Resources tab. I have not gotten around to posting all ROTC as of yet but is on my list.
