Military training was offered in seven schools
for the deaf during the early part of 20th


These state schools were – Berkeley, Florida,
Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New York
and Texas.


Why, especially if the deaf graduates cannot
join the military forces? Said one graduate
– discipline, discipline and discipline.


In these schools, military training was
compulsory. Students cannot back out even
if they wanted to.


Times have changed and one by one these
schools dropped miiitary training.
