From then to now...
Iowa has a rich military tradition going back to 1861 when 124 students laid down their books to fight. The first military course was established in 1864 and in 1874 a well-organized military department was initiated, with First Lt. Alexander D. Schenck leading the first State University of Iowa Battalion.
Continuing this tradition there are currently more than 2,400 members of the VMC attending the University of Iowa.
