Myth: ROTC students are not allowed to express political opinions in class

Instances of this myth: San Jose Mercury News article

Facts: ROTC students and students at service academies are not supposed to criticize the political or military leadership in public in uniform, but they may do so when out of uniform or in an academic setting such as a class.  Thus, ROTC students can express their opinions in the same situations in which their fellow students can do so.
