The Commandant of Cadets is a vice presidential position responsible for the command and control of the 2,100-member South Carolina Corps of Cadets. The commandant reports directly to Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa.

Finalists will be invited to campus for interviews after which Rosa will recommend to the Board of Visitors someone to replace outgoing Commandant Col. Greg Stone.

He and his wife will enter the private sector in Columbus, Ga.

Finalists for commandant of cadets were selected by a five-person search committee. Members are retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Mike Steele, ’67; retired Lt. Col. Ben Legare, ’63, member of The Citadel Board of Visitors; Sam Hines, dean and provost of the college; retired Col. Joe Trez, ’69, director of staff; and retired Brig. Gen. Harry Carter, director of academic leadership programs.
