I'm phobically allergic to the conservative Republican types the military is rife with, but I've only been in country four months and already I hate liberals.
One thing I learned quickly is that the military's officer corps is filled with the best of America's minds--kids that aced their college entrance exams, were the captains of their ball teams, and had to be nominated by senators to go to the schools they did. These are the guys (along with their much more experienced superiors) that are deciding strategy--and they're fucking smart.
As you have heard, Rose-Hulman is cutting our rifle program citing budget issues. We have petitioned the administration and today have gained approval to continue through the 09-10 season with zero funding from our school and using our own money, but will be pushed to a club level team after that season concludes. We will be starting a fundraising campaign and further pressing the institution to let us continue at the NCAA level under own power until the budget opens back up. Please pass this along to any and all networks you desire. If you wish show your support, here are the people to contact:
President Gerald Jakubowski firstname.lastname@example.org
VP Student Affairs Pete Gustafson email@example.com
If you do contact these gentlemen, please thank them for allowing us to continue for one more season and pose the question of what it would take to continue for more.
I have already received some offers of donations. If you are able and willing to make such a contribution, please send checks made out to the team to my snail mail directly and I will file them accordingly with the school.
I am convinced that this is not the end of our program, simply a new chapter in its excellent existence.
