Ironically enough, VMI’s last football game in the Southern Conference was a victory — over The Citadel.  Virginia Military Institute’s 23-21 win over the Bulldogs on Nov. 16, 2002, marked the end of 79 mostly futile years in the SoCon for the Keydets.  After that game, VMI moved on — some would say down — to the Big South Conference, where it has played since 2003.

Iraq: Just Another War Without an End

We know Second Lieutenant Therrel Shane Childers was the first American soldier killed by hostile fire in Operation Iraqi Freedom. 
On March 21, 2003, less than a day after the U.S.-led invasion, Childers was shot in the stomach by hostile forces while leading a Marine platoon to secure an oil field in southern Iraq. His father, Joseph, told NPR that it was his dream to lead Marines into combat. 
Childers, from Gulfport, Miss., had enlisted in the Marines 12 years earlier, was a security guard at the Geneva consulate and the Nairobi embassy, fought in the Persian Gulf War, and then attended the Citadel on a special program that allows enlisted personnel to be commissioned upon graduation. He was a French major and on the Dean’s List. Childers, who had wanted to be a horse trainer when he retired from the Marines, was 30 years old when he died. The Marines promoted him to first lieutenant posthumously.

Citadel looking to stay out of basement

After a 51-7 loss to Chattanooga last week, Western Carolina football coach Dennis Wagner felt compelled to write a letter to Catamounts fans.  In the letter, Wagner called the loss "difficult," "unpleasant" and "not indicative of how we want to represent the university."  "There is no doubt that it is up to us to earn some wins," wrote Wagner, whose team is 1-5 overall and 0-4 in the Southern Conference heading into today's game with The Citadel.

Hey, if this works, maybe some of our dropout-prone high schools should consider installing humongous class ring statues too.

— A Lucerne native will become the first woman inducted into a prestigious military college’s hero society.  In July, Abigail Webber Zuehlke waded into the rough ocean waters at Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina and rescued two Marines caught in a riptide and on the verge of drowning.  Her actions grabbed the attention of officials at her alma mater, The Citadel, and they nominated her for induction into the Arland D. Williams Society. The society is named for a 1957 Citadel graduate who died Jan. 13, 1982, in the icy waters of the Potomac River, a Citadel spokeswoman said.

Although students couldn't unite openly while DADT was in effect, some alumni did. Groups of graduates (and in some cases, faculty and staff) who are no longer in the military have over the years created organizations to support each other and to advocate for currently enrolled LGBTQ students. The groups are active at the United States Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Naval Academy.  None of those institutions has formed a student LGBT group yet, nor have the Citadel or Virginia Military Institute, which, like Norwich, are members of the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States.

It sounded like a Knute Rockne-style motivational speech, and it worked.  In the same sports section, there was an article, with the headline "He's burning mad," about a former Maryland head coach who once was an assistant coach at The Citadel.

Chief recruiter, as I recall, was his title, which meant he employed such practices as promising future Cadets a car if they'd go to the military school. #Al had his eyes on the head job.
