Carolina Forest graduate dedicated to serving the nation

The 2012 S.C. Army National Guard Soldier of the Year, who grew up in Carolina Forest, considers it an honor to represent many people through his service.

Spc. Isaac Chestnut, from the 1222nd Engineer Company, 59th Troop Command, said in light of the state honor he earned in March, he keeps in mind “all the other soldiers and their families, and my parents, God, my country and my extended family.”

If Chestnut, a senior at The Citadel in Charleston, spends part of Independence Day in his usual regiments of personal training, it’s because he’s continuing his preparations for the competition for Army National Guard Soldier of the Year. He said since taking the regional competition in early May in Mississippi, he’s focused on the national competition, going up against three other soldiers in late July at Fort Benning, Ga.

Five questions with ... Norman Weiss, U.S. Navy veteran ('45)

Q: As a veteran, what does Independence Day mean to you?

It means we have liberty and freedom in this country. I probably look at it much differently than an average person. A lot of things I don't even discuss, what I experienced. I keep a lot of my personal thoughts to myself. I think I enjoyed going to The Citadel probably more than anything else, and my military service. I think both things were meaningful to me.
