Throughout The Citadel's history, the military college has produced scores of graduates who have selflessly served their country, often giving their lives, to protect our freedom and the freedom of our allies. As we fight the war on terrorism in Afghanistan, Iraq and other regions, we are proud to recognize our cadets and graduates who are continuing that tradition.
