Three years at the Citadel gave him a start toward a career. His progress has been noteworthy.
Mutt was ready for things as they came, plebe year, yearling academics — His satisfaction was
going through everything as it came, and still looking forward to what was to come. He has
become well known in the Corps, and his being among us has helped make the hard parts easy.
A person who knows exactly what he wants of life, he has a determination that should get it.
