1. Citadel engineering society takes on repairs at downtown's Sacred Heart parish

Among Willey's other missions, he is the Catholic chaplain for The Citadel, the military college just down the road, where he's a favorite of the cadets. Looking for a Christmas public service project, the cadets in the school's American Society of Civil Engineers chapter, didn't have to search far.

2. Medal of Honor Bowl flap was about more than race, not that anyone will notice

If a ref had seen Charleston County Council turn down the Medal of Honor Bowl's request for $25,000 last week, he might have called unnecessary roughness.  But the play stands. Last week Charleston's own bowl game - a charity to raise money for the Medal of Honor Museum - asked council for money to help get the game broadcast on NBC. Seems our bowl isn't big enough to sell its TV rights. We have to pay them.

6. Is Graham a RINO, or a reasonable conservative?

Scott Buchanan is not surprised by any of this. Buchanan is a political science professor at The Citadel - as well as the executive director of the military college's Symposium on Southern Politics - and he sees Graham as being true to his ideology.  That whole thing about Graham not being a conservative - I've never bought that," Buchanan says.

7. Learning to love the Lowcountry

Everything I knew about Charleston before that trip came from the novels of my favorite Southern writer, “Prince of Tides” author Pat Conroy. Until I saw it for myself, the city was a storybook place in my imagination, a spot where a lovely harbor and the castle-like fortress of The Citadel mingled with hallowed history.

8. Andre Roberts looks back at his military past (video included)

Roberts was always fast, but he was undersized, thus his path to the NFL didn't include playing collegiality for a powerhouse. Instead, the son of two military parents found his way to the Citadel and going from jock to South Carolina's renown Corps of Cadets wasn't easy. "I didn't think it would be as hard as it ended up being," says Roberts smiling.

For those families that have someone serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or that plan to contract with the Armed Forces after attending colleges such as The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, they realize just what a commitment it is to choose to turn one’s life over for the freedom of others. Unless you are in their shoes, full realization is difficult to muster.

.Motherhood from one mother’s perspective

People can have their opinions but somehow I have been there through the thick and thin with my children. I have one son studying Biology/Psychology at The Citadel in South Carolina and a freshman in high school that is taking all advanced classes and plays sports like a pro. I have a full-time elderly care business and write at least four to five days each week for multiple sites. In essence, somehow this stay-at-home mom has rocked her life and her kids are all the more successful for it.
