Bernard Warshaw ('42 - obit -- not web accessible)

Bernard Warshaw, of Walterboro, a local businessman, community servant and decorated Army veteran, died Thursday. He was 93. A Walterboro native, Warshaw enrolled at The Citadel shortly before the start of World War II. After graduating in 1942, he was immediately shipped off to Europe with the Army.

 A Jewish man, Warshaw made no effort to disguise his faith despite the risks of fighting in Nazi-controlled territories. He saw the Allied invasion of Italy, the Battle of the Bulge and arrived at Dachau just hours after Allied troops liberated the concentration camp.

 Photos taken by Warshaw at Dachau are archived in the College of Charleston Jewish Heritage Collection.

 Upon returning to Walterboro, Warshaw joined his father’s business as co-owner. The men’s clothing store, Warshaw’s, was a local business mainstay for decades.

 Throughout his life, Warshaw served in numerous leadership roles with local community organizations including the Lions Club, Walterboro Chamber of Commerce, Colleton County Development Board and S.C. State Health Department.

 He was also a leader in the Colleton County Jewish community and served as president of the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina.

 Most recently, Warshaw was a key figure in establishing the Veteran’s Victory House, a Walterboro nursing home for veterans, which opened in 2006.

Warshaw is survived by his wife, Ann L. Wagner Warshaw. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Parker-Rhoden Funeral Home and will be announced at a later date.

18th Bulldog Challenge (not web accessible)

Talk about lions; you have to have true courage to take on the most challenging and longest running “mud run” in the Charleston area.

The 18th annual Citadel Bulldog Challenge starts at 9 a.m. with four-person teams being sent out in two-minute intervals. The event requires the teams, made up of military, police, fire or civilian members, to perform more than a dozen physically and mentally challenging tasks on a nearly six-mile course while the team manages to carry three 20-pound sandbags.

 Participants also have to navigate, as a team, through a military-style obstacle course. Among the “highlights” is the “Battle of Inchon,” where participants “low-crawl” under rope through pluff mud for a distance of about 50 meters.

 As of last week, race director Marine Capt. Marcus Gillett said about 110 four-person teams had signed up and that he expects more before the deadline at 11:59 p.m. Thursday.

Lower-producing officers training programs at Texas colleges may face cuts by Congress (not web accessible)

HOUSTON — Nearly a third of Reserve Officers Training Corps units at Texas colleges are no longer producing enough officers and are facing federal scrutiny that could lead to cutbacks.

Eight of the state's 22 units are being reviewed by the Government Accountability Office, the Houston Chronicle reported (http://bit.ly/1hpXNoK ), with 237 being looked at nationwide.  Congress dissolved 13 units serving 166 cadets last year in 10 states, and nine of them fell under the threshold of producing at least 15 officers to make the programs cost-effective. In the past decade, Texas A&M has led the nation in producing ROTC officers, said retired Army Brig. Gen. Joe E. Ramirez Jr., commandant of the corps at Texas A&M. In 2012, the program graduated 154 of the 595 officers that completed the training.

 

Only The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, surpassed that number, with 174.

The Citadel's Luvandorj is a lesson in dedication

The Citadel wrestling team doesn't get a lot of attention even though it is one of the better athletic programs at the military college. And one of the guys who's led to the Bulldogs' success is someone who didn't speak English eight years ago. Mongolian native Turtogtokh Luvsandorj. Luvsandorj is actually one of the best wrestlers in program history. Maybe the best. When he beat his opponent from Duke 10 days ago, he broke the school's all-time wins record.

Anyway, I’m wondering how they feel about this dubious distinction, if any would care to respond. And what about The Citadel folks? Mr. Underwood graduated from The Sentinel, which is the fictionalized version of The Citadel. Evidently the series is catching fire, and ol’ Frank is quite controversial. What a hoot! Poor Gaffney. Frank found it stifling. Well, it is what it is — not for everyone but perfect for many.”

 If Ben Olsen's coaching career doesn't work out, he very may well have an alternative in mind. After Tuesday morning's training session at the Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium, Olsen gathered nine or 10 balls, positioning them at the 40-yard line. He knocked the first three into the goal with relative ease, then proceeded to drill the next six or seven through the football uprights behind it.

S.C. rich in higher education (letter to the editor by Ernest "Fritz" Hollings '42)

For full disclosure, I have an office at the Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina. I'm vitally interested in the Medical University and the College of Charleston. During my 38 years in the U.S. Senate, I brought facilities to both. The Medical University in Charleston used to get 48 percent of its budget from the Legislature. It now receives only 3 percent. I'm sure that S.C. State, the University of South Carolina, Clemson, The Citadel and Winthrop are short of money.

A proposed satellite of Francis Marion University in Mount Pleasant doesn't make good sense on many levels. First, there are many very good schools of higher learning within half an hour's drive from Mount Pleasant. These include the College of Charleston, Trident Tech, CSU and The Citadel, which has master degree courses for non-military school students.

Rose Cappelli was surrounded by teachers throughout her life – her dad, her aunt, her sister – but it was her father who inspired her to follow in the family’s footsteps. “He was a music teacher and a special ed. teacher. And then he became a school administrator,” said Cappelli. “But it’s always been part of my life.” And it seems teaching was a good career choice for her since just before her retirement, she won the Citadel Heart of Learning Award among all elementary school teachers in Chester County.

"It hasn't made any difference yet," Buchanan said.

Cortez wants what Ike had

Playing cornerback at the NFL level, whether it’s boundary corner, field corner, shut-down corner or sub-package corner, is another world from The Citadel. It’s all about technique, all the time. During the 2013 season, Allen started eight games and played in 14 around an ankle injury that sidelined him in September and relegated him to reserve status for a stretch thereafter. 
He accepted whatever was thrown at him as part of “life’s changes,” and because of “my history at The Citadel, things like that.”

Sapakoff: Worse than pathetic for Citadel basketball team, 4-22 and ignored by cadets

Not counting the pep band, how many Citadel cadets do you think attended the Bulldogs' Saturday night home basketball game against Wofford? Did you guess 300?  Not even close. Only 50? No, way lower. A hearty half-dozen? Almost. In one of the saddest coincidences of the college season, the number of cadets in the end zone student section exactly matched the Citadel win total for the season: Four.
