LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse says its ROTC program is among 13 that are closing nationwide.

The La Crosse Tribune reports the university received a letter from an Army official saying the programs were being shut as a result of "a reduction in resources."

The La Crosse program serves more than 50 students at schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota. The affected universities are UW-La Crosse, Viterbo University, Winona State University and Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.

UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow says the program brought a lot of honor and pride to the campus.
