    Lost for more than 150 years, a precious artifact returns to The Citadel

     

    Charles Courtenay Tew was among the first 26 cadets to report to the Citadel Academy in 1843.  He became the Academy’s first honor graduate in 1846 and the first president of the Academy’s Alumni Association in 1852.

     

    While serving as Superintendent of the Arsenal Academy in Columbia (made auxiliary to the Citadel in 1845), Tew was given a sword by the cadets.  The scabbard of the sword bears a plate engraved “The Cadets of the Arsenal Academy /To Captain C.C. Tew/November 25th 1858.” The collar of the scabbard bears a second inscription: “Captured at Antietam September 17, 1862.”  This is the date Colonel Tew was mortally wounded and the sword, taken from him by a Northern soldier, was lost to history.

     

    On September 17, 2015, 153 years later, the sword will return to The Citadel, courtesy of the 33 Signal Regiment Foundation of Ottawa, Canada.  Please plan to attend a special program on Thursday evening, September 17 at 6:30 in the Daniel Library to hear the story of the sword.  The official transfer of the sword from the 33 Signal Regiment to The Citadel will occur on the parade ground on Friday, September 18, just moments before parade.  More details on these events will be announced shortly.

     

    On September 16, 2015, a special event will be held at Antietam National Battlefield Park in Maryland at 1:00 pm.  For more information contact LTC David S. Goble, Director of Daniel Library at dgoble@citadel.edu/843-953-1267

    The Charleston Citadel Club Board of Directors would like to thank everyone who came out last night to our Annual Oyster Roast. 










    We had an absolute blast and hope you did too. From the fellowship of all the Citadel grads and supporters to the awesome food to hearing the Commandant, Captain Geno Paluso ’89 speak – it was an all around fantastic time. If you were unable to come, don’t worry we have lots more great events planned for the year.

    BULLDOG CHALLENGE; Saturday, 28 February
    As some of you may be familiar with, the Naval ROTC Unit hosts an annual fundraiser designed to create funds for scholarships. The Bulldog Challenge (BDC) is a 10 k (6.2 mile), team-oriented race throughout The Citadel campus and surrounding Charleston area. Included within the race are various obstacles and challenges to include: portions of the Marine Corps combat fitness test (CFT), Marine corps obstacle course, a simulated casualty evacuation using stretchers, and maneuvering through the marsh. These individual events are designed to test your mental toughness, ability to work within your team, and your physical endurance.
    Teams are composed of FOUR individuals. Creative costumes are highly encouraged.
    We are offering CADET DISCOUNTS this year, with a price $140.00 per team ($35.00 per individual). Register as a team of four BEFORE FEBRUARY 1ST in order to be eligible for the discount. Without the discount, it is $200.00 per team, $50.00 per individual.
    Sign up at http://www.active.com/…/the-19th-annual-bulldog-challenge-2…
    This year, members of the Marine Contingent WILL NOT be participating in the event, they will be needed to run the event.
    Again, the event is the morning of Saturday February 28, an open weekend.

    A Message from the CAA President

    DATE:            January 11, 2015

    TO:                 The Citadel Alumni Association Membership

    FROM:           Scott Tucker, President, The Citadel Alumni Association

    RE:                  Combat Ring

     

    The issue of the “Combat Ring” has resulted in a major uproar, within the membership. Regrettably, much of the information out there is just wrong. I would like to set forth the facts on that ring and advise all of you as to the action already planned by your Executive and Ring Committees to insure the integrity of “The Ring”.

    First, the action taken by the Board to approve this was in response to requests for a “combat ring”. The service academies and VMI provide this service to their graduates on the basis of individual requests. The combat ring was intended to be available to our graduates in service to our country. Many of these individuals do not want to risk losing their “Citadel Rings” in faraway lands. It was seen as a service to those brave graduates willing to risk the ultimate sacrifice for our county. However, you do not have to be in the military to request the combat ring. It is of course available to all who would request it and are qualified.

    There are two primary qualifications to be eligible for this combat ring. First, you must be qualified to wear “The Citadel Ring” and second, you must own one. There is no program to push this service but only to offer it upon request. To date, we have sold a total of “0”  combat rings.

    Actions to address your concerns have already been put in motion. The Ring Committee is already set to meet this week. Their report will be advanced to the Executive Committee and then both committees will report to the Board of Directors at the meeting set for 10:00 Saturday morning, January 31st.  Until this issue is resolved, the President has immediately suspended the sale of these rings and any requests will be put on hold. Currently, there are none.

    You are strongly encouraged to contact your District Director and make your wishes known to him or her.

    GO DOGS!
