Citadel Commandant of Cadets Leo Mercado arrived at Kennedy Space Center Sunday for the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis.  Mercado, class of 1979, represents the college, alumni and The Citadel family for Randy Bresnik’s inaugural space flight.


“With STS-129 mission, Randy Bresnik illuminates the leadership of Citadel alumni in our nation and the world of space exploration,” said Mercado. “The Citadel family is proud of Randy, and we wish him and the Atlantis crew Godspeed and success.”
