››CAA and The Citadel Seeking POW and MIA Alumni
National MIA-POW Day is September 16 and the Citadel is planning to honor our alumni who have been POWs or are listed as MIA. We know who our five Vietnam-era POWs and two WWII POW alumni are, but we are not aware of other living alumni who have been POWs or are MIA.

The Alumni Office is asking all alumni if they know of any alumnus who has been a POW. Please call (843-953-7696) or e-mail the Alumni Office if you have any such information.

››Storage for Scholarships
The Citadel Women's Club is in need of your help so that they can continue fundraising for cadet scholarships. A small warehouse or storage unit in the Charleston area that someone is willing to sell, lease or allow use of is needed to collect items for the annual yard sale. These items are collected throughout the year and The Women's Club is running out of space to store them. All proceeds from the sale are marked for cadet scholarships. Also, 2-4 acres of flat land/farmland are needed. If anyone would be willing to sell, lease or allow use of this land for The Women's Club to host an Oozeball (mud volleyball) Tournament in 2006, please e-mail John Carter.
