    Army 1st Lt. Ryan D. Rawl

    Died June 20, 2012 Serving During Operation Enduring Freedom

    30, of Lexington, S.C.; assigned to 133rd Military Police Company, 51st Military Police Battalion, Florence, S.C.; died June 20 in Khost, Afghanistan, of wounds caused by small-arms fire and an improvised explosive device. Also killed were Army Sgt. John D. Meador II and Army Sgt. 1st Class Matthew B. Thomas.

    S.C. Guard names soldiers killed in bomb attack

    By Susanne M. Schafer

    The Associated Press

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — Three South Carolina Army National Guard soldiers were killed and five wounded in an attack by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on June 20, officials say.

    Maj. Gen. Robert Livingston identified the three killed as 1st Lt. Ryan Rawl of Lexington, 30; Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Thomas of Easley, 30; and Spc. John Meador of Columbia, 36.

    Livingston, the state’s adjutant general, would not identify the five wounded.

    The guardsmen were serving with the 133rd Military Police Company, based in Timmonsville. The unit was activated last year and due to return home in August.

    “These men died serving their country and I want to express my deepest sympathy and condolences to their families, who are the unsung heroes of our war effort,” Livingston said in a statement. “These deaths are grim reminders that our military, to include our South Carolina National Guard, is still in active defense of our country. We are privileged to have such heroes in our midst.”

    Livingston says the suicide bomber attacked the soldiers in the city of Khost, about 90 miles southeast of Kabul. The attack claimed 21 lives in all. The assailant detonated his explosives in the packed marketplace as he approached Afghan and U.S. soldiers at the traffic control point, said Baryalai Wakman, a spokesman for the Khost provincial government.

    Livingston said the deaths were the first connected to a South Carolina Guard unit in Afghanistan since October 2010, when Staff Sgt. Willie Harley of Aiken and Sgt. Luther Rabon Jr. of Lexington died in Paktika province when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb.

    Rawl had served with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department since 2005, according to Sheriff Leon Lott.

    “Rawl was willing to stand up to protect and serve; it was with that same pride he did so in his military uniform. He was an example to men and women who wear the uniform everywhere,” Lott said in a statement.

    Rawl graduated from The Citadel and worked as a patrolman and later as a resource officer at Crayton Middle School in Columbia.

    Livingston said the mission of the South Carolina unit was to train members of the Afghan police.

    The unit deployed 170 soldiers to Afghanistan in November 2011.

    Livingston said 16 members of the South Carolina National Guard have died in combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2003.

    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

    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!
