Citadel Knobs Train

On Monday afternoon, Citadel cadre member Dan Cooke trains a squad of freshman cadets, commonly referred to as 'knobs' for their just-shaved heads. The cadets are among 781 who reported to the college on Saturday, coming from 40 states and six countries. This year's 2,958 applications was the most ever received and was the fifth year to break the previous years numbers. Wade Spees/Staff August 19, 2013
