Between July 1, 1943, and June 30, 1946, over 125,000 college-age men were enrolled at 131 colleges and
universities throughout the United States in the V-12 program. Fifteen thousand of these men were in the
Marines Corps V-12 section of the program. All those in V-12 were on active duty, in uniform and subject to
a very strict form of military discipline. Approximately 60,000 of those in the program were eventually
commissioned as Navy ensigns or Marine Corps second lieutenants. V-12 schools ran the gamut from the Ivy
League and large state universities to small, church-associated colleges in very small towns.
