CHARLESTON, SC — Essex Fells resident Cameron Boeckel was among 60 other cadets to be selected to the Citadel’s Class of 2018 Summerall Guards, one of the highest honors that can be achieved by a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at The Citadel.

Located in Charleston, SC, The Citadel offers a classic military college education for young men and women profoundly focused on leadership excellence and academic distinction.

Each winter, junior cadets endure weeks of rigorous physical training and drilling in an attempt to be named a member of the platoon for their senior year, according to The Citadel.

Consisting of 61 members, Summerall Guards are chosen for their physical stamina and drill proficiency. The platoon's purpose is to exemplify, through a unique series of movements based on the old German close-order drill, the exactness and thoroughness with which a cadet is trained.

Membership is considered a high honor at the military college, according to The Citadel. Created in 1932, this unit has performed nationally at Disney World, the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., Mardi Gras in New Orleans and St. Patrick's Day in Savannah, Ga.

The platoon is named for General Charles P. Summerall, former Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army and Citadel president from 1931 until 1953.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
