“In 1953, the ROTC Unit expanded into another building next door, now known as Halsey Hall. Halsey Hall served as the armory and drill deck for Midshipman during inclement weather. During the Vietnam War, the Unit became the focal point for Anti-War protests on grounds. Drill periods were often interrupted by angry protestors, and in 1970 Maury Hall was invaded and vandalized by a group of 200 students. In 1975, Dorothy Nichols became the Unit’s first woman to graduate and receive a commission through the UVA NROTC program.”
