Carter honored with House Resolution

Ed Carter was recently honored for his efforts to bring home to South Carolina the flag that flew over Morris Island in January 1861. The flag is affectionately known as “Big Red”. It took 50 flag experts and historians three years to research through forensics and textile testing, and determine that the flag housed at the Iowa Historical Society’s Civil War Flag Collection was this flag. Carter was presented with a House Resolution at the Rotary Club of Summerville’s March 23 meeting recognizing him for being named Alumnus of the Year by the Citadel Alumni Association in honor of his efforts in recovering this significant artifact.

1_Retired general critical of Barack Obama

Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey didn't mince words Thursday when asked what he thought of the U.S. intervention in Libya.  "I think it was a mess. Hope is not a good system in either birth control or military operations. We're hoping that Gadhafi's inner ring kills him," said McCaffrey, who retired as a four-star general.  There are no vital U.S. security interests at stake in Libya, he said. "There's no risk to us except money and prestige." Although empathetic to the dilemma facing the Obama administration, McCaffrey, who spoke at The Citadel, said in an interview that there was moderate-to-low support in the international community for the military action.

Girl, 17, goes public to clear her name

High school junior Kelsey Upton was puzzled.  Why was a stranger from Iowa sending her a text message?  Her confusion turned to terror last fall when she learned that the person who had sent the message had plucked her personal information from a pornographic website.  Without her knowledge, someone had placed her name and phone number on the site next to a photo of a naked woman, in an explicit position, who somewhat resembled her.  How could that be?  Her father, a federal investigator who previously worked for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, traced the posting to a Citadel cadet, with the help of law enforcement officials.

Talley can't prevent a Samford sweep

Five innings of Matt Talley was not enough for The Citadel to stave off a three-game sweep by Samford in Southern Conference baseball Sunday.  Talley, the Bulldogs' senior ace, pitched for the first time since Feb. 25 and held Samford to one unearned run over five innings. But the left-hander was limited to 85 pitches as he comes back from a strained oblique, and Samford scratched out one run in the sixth against reliever T.J. Clarkson for a 2-1 victory at Riley Park.

According to a source close with the Citadel football team (Scott of ScarDraft.com), the Patriots will hold a private workout with cornerback/safety Cortez Allen this Wednesday. Allen (6’1, 197) played cornerback at Citadel, but may project to free safety with many NFL teams. He ran a 4.50 forty at this years NFL Combine, but his fluid hips and great footwork solidified a mid-round pick in our estimation. His broad jump and shuttle times were also very impressive.
