CURTOStudent veterans discuss their experiences at a panel organized by Military Appreciation and Support at Harvard (MASH),titled “Through the Eyes of Soldiers,” in Emerson 105 last night.A contingent of Harvard student veterans shared their military experiences with an intimatecrowd at Emerson Hall last night, urging students and civilian leaders to better familiarizethemselves with the inner workings of the armed forces. The panel, “Through the Eyes of Soldiers,” was sponsored by Military Appreciation andSupport at Harvard (MASH), which says it is nonpartisan. Although the club was formed lastsemester under the auspices of the Harvard Republican Club—drawing financial andadministrative support from the group, according to MASH co-director Andrea M. Nosal ’08—it hopes to apply for independent student-group status next semester. “We want to get this campus to engage in a dialogue, no matter personal beliefs on actualpolitics. Separate the military from the controversy,” Nosal said. Reserve Officers’ Training Corps member and panelist Peter H. Brooks ’06 said that for himthe event was about fostering a greater understanding of the military for both Harvardstudents and the wider community. “There is a huge civil-military divide,” he said. “Especially here at Harvard, as future leadersof our country, it would seem as though they should have some sort of familiarity with themilitary.” Panelist John H. Silva, a graduate student at the Kennedy School of Government and aveteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, agreed, stating that there is “an enormous disconnect 1 of 2Soldiers Discuss Military Service | The Harvard Crimson11/19/10 7:06 PMbetween the military and the elite in this country—just look at Congress.” The panel represented diverse military experiences, with former or current members of theU.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Army, and Navy represented, as well as the Norwegian andFinnish militaries.
