Today, Falvey Library and the Villanova community celebrate Independence Day. This photo, courtesy of the Digital Library@Villanova University, was taken of Villanova’s Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps, in the 1940s. The University maintains one of about 60 U.S. NROTC units, and “reserve commissions as Ensign or 2nd Lieutenant are awarded upon successful completion of prescribed naval science courses and graduation from the University.”
