1. South Carolina National Guard leader offers cadets advice at The Citadel Army ROTC

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny,” is a proverb that was shared with U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets from The Citadel during a leadership lab held January 11, 2018.

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. R. Van McCarty, deputy adjutant general for South Carolina and 1982 graduate of The Citadel, shared the quote he found showcased in Dr. Len Marrell’s book, “In Search of Ethics” to highlight the importance of integrity in decision making. He read the quote during his presentation to Freshmen and Sophomore cadets as their guest speaker, providing insight on professional development and answering questions about military leadership.
