Notes from recent board meeting of Citadel Alumni Association, formerly The Association of Citadel Men

The meeting started with recognition of Alicia Buehring and her sons Nick '16 and Drew '17 for their donation of the Ring of Chad Buehring '85 who was KIA in Iraq in 2003. His Ring was cut in half, melted down, and was added to the gold to make the 2016 Rings. The other half will be added to the 2017 Rings. Nick and Drew are Lt Col Buehring’s sons.

It is of note that the Citadel Ring has been standardized since 1940 with only the numerals changing from year to year. Rings are presented to First Class cadets in October each year so the Class of 2016 will receive them next Fall. It’s always special time and especially so for the Classes of 2016 and 2017.

ok that's pretty damn awesome.

looks like the LtCol is sporting the "tower of power" on the sleeve,

I know my son will start with is grandfathers "butter bars" if he chooses the commissioning route with A&M Corps. of Cadets.

Great way to pass along the legacy, tradition and hopefully real life experience that will assist the survival of others.
