Following the Vietnam War, when college campuses were hotbeds of protest and unrest, Sam Houston State University opened its doors to military police for an intensive master’s program to guide their future careers.

“During the Vietnam Conflict, those in the military who wanted to go to graduate school were not welcome on college campuses,” said Larry Raab, one of the graduates of the master’s program in Criminal Justice. “Most campuses were protesting the war and most didn’t want military on campus. Three universities welcomed us with open arms, and Sam Houston State University (SHSU) specialized in the correctional aspects of policing. Dr. (George) Killinger, Dr. (George) Beto and the entire faculty welcomed us with open arms and made us feel welcome.”
