2. Wave of military rollover deaths heightens fears over equipment and training
A series of accidents over the past month have led to the deaths of at least five and injuries to 43 American troops, triggering questions over whether equipment and training shortcomings are responsible. Frequent deployments since 9/11 and a lack of predictable defense funding has forced the military to do more with less for nearly 20 years. Many of the vehicles troops use are older than they are, and even newer ones suffer from parts shortages. The need for constant maintenance by fewer troops means training is often pushed back, or even canceled. Some are concerned recent accidents could be the result of a larger readiness problem. "If you haven't been getting enough miles on your vehicle, you can be susceptible to those kinds of accidents," retired Army Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr told the Washington Examiner. First Lt. Conor McDowell, 24, died and six Marines were injured on May 9 after a LAV-25 light armored vehicle rolled over during a training event at Camp Pendleton, Calif. A graduate of the Citadel in South Carolina, McDowell had completed his Light Armored Reconnaissance course in March and had only recently taken command of his platoon. "Driven, sincere, unique, honorable, funny ... You're one of the good ones," said one of the Facebook posts responding to the death of McDowell, who had been about to propose to his girlfriend.

3. NEW ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIP BY GULFSTREAM
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. established the Dan D. Nale Engineering Scholarship Endowment Fund for students who are pursuing degrees in civil, mechanical, electrical or aerospace engineering. Nale retired as Gulfstream’s senior vice president of Programs, Engineering and Test in April after more than 30 years with the company. He now works as an engineering professor at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. Nale began his Gulfstream career as a structural analysis engineer in 1984 and held positions of increasing responsibility in the company’s engineering organization. He was appointed senior vice president in 2013. During his tenure at Gulfstream, Nale worked on the Gulfstream GIVTM and GVTM programs; midcabin programs, including the Gulfstream G280TM; and the development and entry into service of the all-new Gulfstream G500TM and Gulfstream G600TM. The scholarship is open to dependents of Gulfstream employees who are pursuing a Bachelor of Science in engineering.

5. SC1: Kathy Landing Makes It Official
She is mulling no longer, it would appear … Mount Pleasant, South Carolina financial advisor and town councilwoman Kathy Landing dove headfirst into the Palmetto State’s first congressional district race on Monday – setting up a battle for the Republican nomination with current frontrunner Nancy Mace. And perhaps others … Whoever wins the GOP nod next June will go up against Democrat incumbent Joe Cunningham, who flipped this seat blue last November in a shocking upset. However, Mace – a second-term state lawmaker – is viewed as “all in,” a perception capably reinforced by her recent decision to retain the services of controversial strategist Wesley Donehue to handle her S.C. State House digital-related initiatives. Mace is also reportedly working with Washington, D.C.-based strategist Doug Stafford, a longtime advisor to U.S. senator Rand Paul. The 41-year-old lawmaker – the first woman to graduate from The Citadel – is expected to announce her candidacy sometime later this month. Based on her previous political campaigns, she is expected to give Landing a run for her money on the fundraising front.

6. Coaxing Veterans Into Treatment to Prevent Suicides
To Army veteran Everett Brockington, 52, there’s no mystery about why so many veterans die by suicide: “They’ve seen things and done things that they can’t handle. And they’ve lost too many of their close friends.” Most of the veterans Brockington knows rely on one another for support instead of seeking mental health services. “We talk to each other about our problems all the time,” Brockington said. But he admitted, “It would be better if we had someone to talk to who knew what they were doing.” Although retired and active military service members die by suicide at twice the rate of civilians, research shows that veterans who receive mental health care are much less likely to end their lives than those who don’t. A soon-to-be-released study from the Medical University of South Carolina here in Charleston may shed light on how to persuade reluctant veterans to seek that professional help. Charleston, home to the Citadel military academy and combined Air Force and Navy training center Joint Base Charleston, has the seventh-largest metropolitan concentration of military personnel in the country. South Carolina, with a population of roughly 5 million, ranks 11th in the nation for its percentage of military in the adult population.

7. Wando's Cisco among finalists for Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame
Former Wando and South Carolina standout Mike Cisco is among the six finalists for the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2019 class. Cisco is joined by longtime coach and current Porter-Gaud assistant Tony Cadden, Summerville state champion Bo Parks, former College of Charleston coach John Pawlowski and Citadel legends Steve Arrington and Michael Montei. Two inductees will be decided by fan voting. A third will be chosen by the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame advisory committee. The three honorees will be enshrined on August 3 at Joe Riley Jr. Park prior to the Charleston RiverDogs’ home game against Delmarva. Arrington, a 2017 Citadel Hall of Fame inductee, was named the 1973 Southern Conference baseball player of the year after leading the Souther Conference in strikeouts (93 in 65 innings pitched), home runs (6) and RBIs (28) and was named to the South Carolina College Coaches All-Star team at both right fielder and pitcher. He was a member of the 1971 SoCon Championship team that went 22-9 under Coach Chal Port. Arrington pitched a pair of one-hitters, and held the school single-season records for strikeouts with 213 (196 IP) in 1973, complete games (8 in 1972), and shutouts (3 in 1971), and was second in ERA (0.96) in 1973. Montei, a 2005 Citadel Hall of Fame inductee, is a two-time member of the All-Southern Conference baseball team and a four-year letterman. His 30 victories, along with Hall of Famer Dick Almes ’60, set the standard for all Citadel pitchers. When he graduated in 1987, Montei was tied as the second all-time winningest pitcher in military college history, and also held school records for most innings pitched in a season (99.1 in ’87) and career (315), and most career appearances (64).

8. Former Spartan Jesse Johnson promoted to Michigan State defensive analyst
The Michigan State football program added another analyst to the staff and it’s a familiar name. Former Spartan defensive back Jesse Johnson, who spent the last two years as a graduate assistant with the team, was promoted in the offseason to a full-time position as a defensive analyst. A freedom of information act request filed by MLive showed Johnson signed a contract on March 18. After graduating from Michigan State, Johnson was a defensive/special teams quality control coach at The Citadel in 2012. He made stops as a graduate assistant at Central Michigan (2013-14) and Syracuse (2015) and returned to Mount Pleasant as the Chippewas’ on-campus recruiting coordinator in 2016 before coming back to Michigan State as a graduate assistant the following year.

9. 10 best nonconference games in the FCS
The best nonconference games are the ones in which each side goes into it saying, and worrying, it's a risky matchup. There are some doozies across FCS college football in 2019. Just as it should be. Following is a Top 10 of the best nonconference games (those between teams within the same conference that count as nonconference games aren't considered for this list): 10. Towson at The Citadel (Aug. 31): Towson quarterback Tom Flacco and The Citadel's triple option offense figure to make it a track meet, like a year ago (Towson won 44-27).

9. 10 teams Alabama has never faced but should
When it comes to beefing up its non-conference schedule, few programs nationally are as brazen as the Alabama Crimson Tide. The defending SEC champions have contracts in place for future games with Texas, Notre Dame and Oklahoma along with others, matchups that will strengthen one of college football's most recognizable brands against elite Power 5 competition. Even amid chatter about the SEC possibly moving to a nine-game conference schedule, Alabama hasn't stopped looking for ways to enhance the fan experience and improve schedule toughness outside of league play. Alabama has played two games against service academies, the first coming against Army in the 1988 El Paso Bowl and the other last season vs. The Citadel. Saban actually coached defensive backs at Navy for one season in 1982 before becoming a first-time head coach eight years later at Toledo. This could easily be one of those made-for-TV midseason games during Military Appreciation Weekend hosted by the Naval Academy, but played at FedEx Field or something. Networks would fight for airplay. Schematically, Navy's triple option gives teams fits and we saw what The Citadel was able to accomplish last fall vs. the Crimson Tide (keep it close for 2.5 quarters).

1b. North Carolina natives travel to France for 75th anniversary of D-Day
Thursday marks the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings, also known as D-Day. On June 6, 1944, Allied forces invaded Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. D-Day was the largest seaborne invasion in history. To honor those who fought during WWII, servicemen from all over the U.S. are in France, including men and women from North Carolina. Samuel McCauley is part of the cordon for the arrival of President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday. As part of the D-Day commemoration, Samuel also escorted WWII veterans through the cemetery, soaking up living history lessons from those who stormed the beach at Normandy. “He graduated from The Citadel with a history degree so he loves history,” Anna said of Samuel. “I think a poignant moment for him was escorting a World War II vet around the cemetery and the gentleman telling him how he had fought from the beaches to the Battle of the Bulge.” Anna said her son will be in France until early next week.

2b. Through the eyes of the Charleston hospital workers movement: 50 years later

In March 1969, African American hospital workers had enough. Underpaid and overworked, hundreds, mostly women, took their grievances to the streets of Charleston. They demanded better treatment, the rehiring of 12 co-workers fired by the Medical College Hospital, now the Medical University of South Carolina, and the recognition of the Local 1199B union.

Interviews include:

Kerry Taylor, professor of history at The Citadel, speaking at an April commemoration for the hospital strikers.

Mary Moultrie, one of 12 fired hospital workers at Medical College Hospital and a strike leader, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

Rosetta Simmons, one of 12 fired hospital workers at Medical College Hospital and a striker, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

William “Bill” Saunders, among the earliest community advocates of the striking hospital workers, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

4b. Alamance Community College graduates more than 900
More than 900 graduates gathered Friday, June 7, in Elon University’s Alumni Gym for Alamance Community College’s 2019 Commencement. Roughly 600 earned associate degrees, while others earned diplomas, certificates or high school equivalencies. Twenty Alamance-Burlington seniors were awarded associates a week shy of graduating from high school thanks to the Career and College Promise program, which allows ABSS juniors and seniors to take courses at ACC for free. As ACC President Algie Gatewood introduced the commencement speaker, Elon University President Connie Book, he joked that it was odd to be welcoming her to her own university. But her message was perfect for the occasion. The sixth of nine children, Book was taught to value education from an early age. She and her eight siblings attended Oregon State University, where her father earned his doctorate. After serving in various roles at Elon from 1999 to 2015, Book left to become provost at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, where she learned valuable lessons in leadership. Those lessons aided her in becoming Elon University’s first female president — a role she assumed in March 2018.

Campbell, who ranks fifth in the FCS in punting, led the Southern Conference with 16 punts over 50 yards and had at least one punt over 50 in each of the last nine games. Twenty-two of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line, including a season-best five against Furman. His freshman season was filled with accolades as HERO Sports named him to the First-Team Freshman All-America Team.

When Chris Lemonis stepped to the podium on June 25, 2018 at Dudy Noble Field to become the 18th head baseball coach in Mississippi State’s storied history, a journey of nearly 40 years came full circle. The son of a 1973 State graduate, Lemonis resided in Starkville as a child and now returned to lead one of the perennial powerhouses in college baseball. One of the top recruiters and player development coaches in the country, Lemonis has seen success at every coaching stop. After helping his alma mater, The Citadel, to five NCAA Regional appearances in 12 seasons as an assistant coach, Lemonis joined college teammate Dan McDonnell’s staff at Louisville and quickly turned the Cardinals into a consistent Omaha contender.

6d. How conversation with Pat Summitt sparked Joan Cronan's return to Tennessee
When Joan Cronan scheduled to meet with College of Charleston President Ted Stern in 1973, she did so to emphasize the importance of launching women’s athletics at the college. She left that meeting with a job — actually, four jobs. “I was either a very good negotiator or a bad negotiator, but I walked out of that meeting as volleyball coach, basketball coach, tennis coach and AD,” said Cronan, who was the College of Charleston’s women’s athletics director for 10 years. Cronan started her career in athletics as Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach for the 1969 and '70 seasons. She stepped away from athletics for a few years while she and her husband, Tom, had two children. The family moved to Charleston, South Carolina, for Tom to take a job at The Citadel. Within a year of moving there, Cronan sought a meeting with Stern and re-entered athletics. Summitt became Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach in 1974, and she and Cronan got to know each other during Cronan’s time at the College of Charleston.

His father, Fred, coached basketball legend Jerry West at West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to six SoCon titles before going on to coach the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. Schaus talked with The Post and Courier about his view of the 10-member SoCon, which includes South Carolina schools The Citadel, Wofford and Furman, and the future of the league.
