During her time as dean at Harvard, Ms. Kagan reversed Harvard’s existing policy and kicked the military out of the recruiting office, in violation of federal law. Her actions punished the military and demeaned our soldiers as they were courageous fighting for our country in two wars overseas. As someone who feels the burden of sending such young men and women into harm’s way, and who spent much time drafting and redrafting legislation to ensure military recruiters were treated fairly on campus, I can’t take this issue lightly.
