Seems to Me . . . On Membership and Recognition (scroll down)

Now, I hate to brag, but when I was at The Citadel, I walked more punishment tours and received more demerits than any other cadet in school history, except for my roommate, Tad Jackson. TJ’s record lasted almost twenty years. The man simply had a bad attitude. Lord knows I tried to counsel him, but to no avail. To the best of my recollection, neither of us was ever the outstanding cadet of the week. Of course, we did live a military life, rather than take a military class twice a week.
