Members of 2005 Summerall Guards named

          Sixty-one cadets have been named members of the 2005 Summerall Guards, which took command from the Class of 2004 during Saturday's Corps Day festivities. This year's Corps Day celebrated The Military College of South Carolina's 161st birthday.

          The Summerall Guards is a silent precision drill platoon from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. Members are all first-class (seniors) cadets who go through a rigorous physical training and initiation process and are chosen for their physical stamina and drill proficiency.

          The platoon's purpose is to exemplify, through a unique series of movements based on the old German close order drill and performed to a silent count, the exactness and thoroughness with which The Citadel cadet is trained.

          The platoon is named for General Charles P. Summerall, former Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army and president of The Citadel from 1931 until 1953.
