Welcome to the Memorial

In fifteen American and two Commonwealth cemeteries in Europe and North Africa, 47 Citadel Men rest in peace, and another nine are memorialized on Tablets of the Missing. These men share a special bond – they were members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets while attending The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. Here, we honor and remember them.
