Re-enactors mark 150 years since end of Civil War
On the Friday night before the Occupation of Manatee, Mike Bloski cooked campfire stew for a crew of about a dozen Civil War re-enactors. He did it with an awkward bandage on his thumb - the first wound of the weekend. "I had a can accident earlier," Bloski explained, laughing at himself. "If you don't draw blood at a re-enactment, then you're not trying." Most of the participants came from the Gulf Coast, but Michael Santana traveled all the way from Miami. The 22-year-old just graduated from The Citadel in South Carolina, where Civil War history hits close to home for cadets.

1. Keeping America safe: a look at one of the nation's top producers of criminal justice professionals
There is one, very definable thing that people who get accepted into The Citadel's Department of Criminal Justice share. That's according to the retired secret service special agent in charge teaching many of the future detectives, police officers and special service agents attending The Military College of South Carolina. "They all come in here focused and intent on helping keep their country and communities safe - they simply possess a strong sense of purpose," says Edwin Lugo, visiting instructor at The Citadel. "It's the common thread of what drew me to be an agent and brings these young men and women to our program- the desire to help make things right," said Lugo. "I have always had a sense of wanting to help someone who can't help him or herself." Cadet Raymond St. John, a Citadel Class of 2015 criminal justice graduate agrees with his former instructor. "I chose criminal justice because I have always wanted to be law enforcement. I wanted a career where I could make an impact in the world right around me."
