Charleston, South Carolina -- Saturday, August 4, 2018
Under a portrait of former Citadel president Lt. Gen. Claudius E. Watts III, members of the cadet leadership cadre listen to an active duty member of the Command Post Technologies speak about his journey through the military.
On Saturday, August 4, 478 members of the Citadel leadership cadre participated in the Leadership Reaction Experience, a training day focused on team building, lead by current and former special operations and military personnel. Throughout the day, cadets listened to lectures on teamwork and participated in group problem-solving exercises, but the day ended with a demanding Navy SEAL-style physical training intensive on the beach at sunset.
