Brigadier General R.M. Lake USMC, Class of 1977

Doing the right thing involves determining what the right thing is and then doing it. The bigger challenge is usually finding the willingness to do the right thing. My experience with the Honor Code at The Citadel provided me with two great lessons. First, it gave me a standard I could use to help me decide what is right both as Cadet and in the military. Second, it gave me the invaluable opportunity to practice doing the right (but often tough) thing. (Brigadier General Lake was Professor of Naval Science 2004-2005, The Citadel)
