Kale spoke on the military history of the College of William and Mary. The very first student was a militia unit member. Since then many students have left for service in war including Revolutionary, Civil, and World Wars. William and Mary has also been the site of military encampments - unique among United States colleges - during both Revolutionary and Civil Wars. The British and French were there during the former and Union and Confederates during the latter. During the Vietnam War and to this day, William and Mary has steadfastly supported the United States military with its ROTC program remaining always a part of the curriculum.
