Citadel to honor Class of '44

The Citadel's Class of 1944 never had a commencement ceremony because every member was called up during their junior year to serve in World War II.

But all the remaining members of that group, known as "the class that never was," will be honored Saturday at the commencement of the Class of 2008.

The Citadel Class of ‘44 was called into military service toward the end of their junior year. Some, including A. Lee Chandler (left), a retired South Carolina chief justice, went on to other universities to graduate after the war while others, such as Col. Bob Adden (right), returned to  The Citadel, where he taught for more than 30 years. The two were at The Citadel on Tuesday as cadets made their way to the dining hall.
