Air Force general to visit The Citadel

          General T. Michael Moseley, vice chief of staff, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C., will speak to the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at an 11 a.m. Thursday, March 18 Greater Issues address in McAlister Field House. The speech is free and open to the public.

          Moseley was in the Pentagon on
Sept. 11, 2001 when it was attacked by terrorists. He helped evacuate the building and watched with others the fire that raged. Two months later at Prince Sultan Air Base in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia he commanded all coalition air forces for 656 days as part of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

          The Greater Issues Series aims to engage cadets' interest and knowledge in important topics of the day. Since it was established in 1954, the Greater Issues Series has brought presidents, heads of state, scholars, diplomats, journalists and distinguished business and military leaders to Charleston and The Citadel. The series is made possible by a grant from The Citadel Foundation.

          As Vice Chief, Moseley presides over the Air Staff and serves as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Requirements Oversight Council.
He is a graduate of Texas A&M University with both a bachelor's and master's degree in political science. He has commanded the F-15 Division of the USAF Fighter Weapons School at Nellis AFB, Nev., the 33rd Operations Group at Eglin AFB, Fla., and the 57th Wing, the Air Force's largest, most diverse flying wing, also at Nellis.
