    History says with the end of involvement in Afghanistan and a democratic administration more interested in 'domestic programs' another major downsizing of the military is coming as was the case in the early 90s after Desert Storm.

    Best Citadel '21 Graduation Speech

    The only thing I remember about my classes graduation is that the speaker was Admiral Stansfield Turner, CIA Director and USNA classmate of then Citadel President Admiral James Stockdale. I was so thrilled to be finished that I was in a state of euphoria.

    Federal agencies like FBI, DEA and Secret Service are highly selective so everything you can do to strengthen the resume is a plus and most employers love to hire folks with a military background especially if you have experience in OSI, Military Police or Intelligence. I know quite a few...

    SecDef busts retired 2 Star down to 2d Lieutenant

    I does seem that senior officers get off lightly in the courts, that sentence is obscene. Last year the incoming Wing Commander at Andrews AFB was charged with 30 felony counts of possessing child pornagraphy and got 10 years probation.

    Is Arlington imagery a no no in campaign ads?

    He is a civilian so the UCMJ doesn't apply. I personally am not offended by an ad of this nature, folks should be alot more concerned about the sleazy shows that fill the airwaves these days.

    Investigation confirms problems at VMI

    You conveniently overlook the incident a few years ago when the sexual assault of a female cadet was not taken seriously and covered up. "Witchhunt" and "biased survey" are standard rationalizations when the message isn't a pleasant one.

    First, the only private military college is Norwich while the other SMCs are all public institutions.

    Citadel Veterans Memorial, do other SMC have similar?

    No, the cadet time counts for retirement pay purposes but you must have 20 years of commissioned service for retirement.
