In a sad note away from sports, SFC Christopher Andrew Celiz was killed in gunfire while in contact with the enemy in Afghanistan.  Reports are that he attended The Citadel. If a grad, I would figure class of 2008 maybe?  Does anyone know if he was a grad or left early to serve? (I know of a least one grad who worked with me in Afghanistan who joined up for Ranger Regiment and worked his way up through the ranks to SFC, spending his whole career in the Regiment)

Deepest sympathy to his family, and wish to honor him for his valiant service.

Another story -graduated from M Co, this one says.

Christopher “Chris” Celiz was a native of Summerville, SC which is located just outside Charleston. Chris was a graduate of The Citadel where he was a member of “Mike” Company as a cadet.
