September 30th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

More Clemson’s Military History

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from Clemson extensive Military History.

As the 1940s arrive, and the US enters World War II, 6,475 Clemson alumni would enter the service. In fact, Clemson provided more Army officers for the war than any other institution except West Point and Texas A&M. Sadly, during the war, 370 would be killed.

During the Korean War, 1500 Clemson alumni would answer the call to duty, with 20 killed in action.

In the 1960s the Counter Guerrillas was formed, and the Clemson ROTC opened to women, later in the 1970s.

(Note: If you have old pictures dating before 1990 that are Clemson related and you would like to share them, send them to me in an email with as much information about the picture as you can give and I will use it for a future “Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day”).
