Rob, a junior, is good friends with Ben, a knob – they are from the same hometown. On Saturday morning The Citadel football team wins and knobs are granted leave until 0100, upperclassmen get an overnight. Ben comes back for 0100 All-Ins and meets Rob in his room. Hearing about a party downtown Rob gives Ben an extra pair of junior shoulder boards and the two of them leave to take the overnight and go downtown. Honor Violation(s)? Discussion Topic
Discussion Topic • What if a cadet comes into the barracks, shortly before all-ins are completed, to “check in” with their weekend duty teams. They notify the all-in takers that they are present for all-ins and then leave again for the night (often with their cars still running outside or a ride waiting for them). This demonstrates that they have no intention to spend the night in the barracks and that they are reporting to their weekend duty teams merely to avoid the consequences of a night out.
Your thoughts • Would you consider this type of situation to be an act of deception to try to convince the all-in takers that the cadets in question are in the barracks for the night? • Is this purely a disciplinary issue? • Would you consider this to be living by the “Spirit of the Code” • How do you think these actions might affect underclassmen’s impression of honor at The Citadel?
