What if Pat Conroy never went to the Citadel?

1962. Beaufort, S.C. Eighteen-year-old Pat Conroy boards a Greyhound bus for his first year at the Citadel. In the seat next to him is a pretty girl in a paisley dress. She's reading The Feminine Mystique, bound for Berkeley. The bus pulls into the Greyhound station on Wentworth Street. Pat looks out the window. The basketball coach is there, as are a row of fellow knobs sweating in the August sun. Red-faced upperclassmen are screaming their heads off at them.

Citadel cadets in final rehearsals for candlelight service

The Citadel’s Christmas Candlelight Service is one of Charleston’s most popular musical holiday events, and the military college doesn’t even offer a music major. It’s crunch time for rehearsals for the annual event, which runs from Friday through Sunday, said Nancy Lefter, the school’s director of choral activities. Event organizers hold 15 rehearsals starting in late October, but cadets had off last week for Thanksgiving break, she said, so they have some ground to make up. “This is the week we’re really pushing.”

Flags lowered to honor fallen graduate of The Citadel’s Class of 2012

A recent graduate of The Citadel, who was killed in the line of duty last week while working as a sheriff’s deputy, will be honored across the state on the day of his funeral which is Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013. Under a new law passed last summer, flags at the state capitol and around the state are to be lowered on the day of the funeral of a South Carolinian killed in the line of duty.  The message on the state’s website reads: “Governor Nikki Haley requests that the flag be flown at half-staff Thursday, December 5, 2013, in memory of Florence County Deputy Joseph Antwine.”  Flags at The Citadel will also be flown at half-staff.jantwine

Antwine, 23, graduate of The Citadel Class of 2012, died Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, after a duty-related car accident hospitalized him one week earlier.  According to authorities, Antwine was responding to a call for immediate assistance by another deputy when the crash happened.

Last May, just before graduation at The Citadel, Antwine received the Col. Joseph E. Perkins Honor Committee Award for recognition of invaluable service to the Corps of Cadets by upholding and promoting the high ideals of The Citadel Honor System. Antwine was also known for investing much of his time at the college’s Summerall Chapel as leader and volunteer.

“Deputy Joseph Antwine was the epitome of the kind of cadet and graduate The Citadel strives to produce. A true scholar and gentleman, he was not shy about expressing his feelings while always willing to lend a helping hand to all,” said Joes Harris, The Citadel’s chaplain. “A man of faith, Joe exemplified the idea of the servant leader. Active in the Campus Wesleyan Foundation, his spirit was infectious to anyone with whom he came into contact.”

Antwine’s funeral will be held at the Lake City Pentecostal Holiness Conference Center in Lake City on Thursday.
