The Military Appreciation Day celebration at Clemson on Sept. 6 was a wonderful thing. I enjoyed helping the Clemson folks plan parts of it. I read with distress the recent letter concerning "Yankee Music," which appeared in The Post and Courier. The attack on the cadets of The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes to criticize decisions of past Citadel administrations was disingenuous and deceptive.

Band on the run

Note this column is satirical.
As every good pseudo-intellectual knows, the actor Edward Keane (apocryphally) used his final breaths to utter the phrase, "Dying is easy; comedy is hard"; the Princeton University Band, in a much-flamed-about incident, attempted both this past Saturday at The Citadel, and by almost all measures, it failed miserably at each: The cadets were not particularly amused by the band's shtick, and the only casualty was a fallen clarinet.

Letter to the Editor: 'Yankee' songs

Regarding the letter to the editor about songs played by The Citadel band at the Military Appreciation Day at Clemson as being "Yankee" songs: The letter writer was correct in saying that "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" is a "Yankee" song. So many Southern folks are unaware of that. "The Battle Cry of Freedom" is a Confederate song from the War for Southern Independence. I suppose that is a suitable substitution since the band seems no longer to be allowed to play our favorite, "Dixie."

His company commander is Capt. Ryan Hester. When Murray read through the company Table of Organization and Equipment, he saw Hester’s name, but figured it couldn’t be the same Hester he knew in college. Similarly, when Hester glanced at Murray at a unit formation, he figured the trainee must be someone who just resembled the man he knew five years ago. As it happens, they both were wrong. Murray and Hester were classmates at the Citadel in Charleston, S.C. and graduated together in 2003. Hester, however, received an Army commission through the ROTC program while Murray chose to enter the family business after graduation.
