Newest officers know the score; Graduates complete ROTC training with war in their sights (1 of 4)
...“We will do our jobs and do them well,” said Citadel graduate William Westmoreland, 22, of Greer, who is joining the S.C. Army National Guard.

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, more than 70 percent of S.C. Guard members have been mobilized — most of them deployed to combat zones. Col. Cardon Crawford, a 23-year Army veteran and military science professor at The Citadel, said he is impressed with the newest crop of officers. “They see belonging to the military as being something bigger than themselves, and they want to make a difference,” said Crawford, a 1983 graduate of The Citadel. ...

As hackers have found their way into computer networks around the country in recent years — putting individuals’ personal information at risk of identity theft and embarrassing companies, colleges and other entities — many if not most higher education institutions have significantly tightened their technological security. But as revealed by recent security breaches at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, and two others announced Monday at Ohio University, the steps taken so far have far from completed the job of securing campus networks. ...

Legendary Citadel figure 'The Boo' dies at 89
Lt. Col. Thomas Nugent Courvoisie, "The Boo" of Citadel legend and the inspiration for two Pat Conroy books, died Sunday night. He was 89. As the military college's assistant commandant of cadets in the 1960s, he dished out discipline in a school where that is of the utmost importance. His call of "Halt, Bubba," stopped a generation of cadets in their tracks. Courvoisie was the picture of military ferocity: Dapper in a pressed uniform, a stern look on his face as he gnawed on a cheap cigar. He could pass out demerits, confinements and tours - a form of punishment that requires a cadet to march back and forth across the quadrangle - as fast as a gunslinger.
