The Cordell Airborne Rangers, a Citadel cadet military club, participated as part of Joint Task Force Charleston during a Defense Support to Civil Authorities training exercise on Friday, April 12, 2019. The cadets mission was an anonymous tip of plot of a dynamic attack on the port of Charleston. While a domestic terrorist group hide's out in a remote area where the 31 cadets, SWAT Snipers and The Charleston County Sheriff's Office move via boat to infiltrate and isolate the area. LTC Tim Terese said the organization started off from the memory of Terry Cordell, who was the first Citadel alumni killed in Vietnam in 1962 as a tactics training group following the Vietnam era.
