Kelly Hasselman, R Co. ’07

April 25, 2014


“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt “Man in the Arena”

Captain (CPT) Kelly M. Hasselman is a native of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and was commissioned through ROTC as a second lieutenant after graduating from The Citadel in South Carolina with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in May of 2007.

CPT Hasselman always wanted to go into the military and discovered The Citadel through her competitive soccer coach when she met the Citadel women’s soccer coach at the time, Megan Hjerling, at a recruiters event. During her time at The Citadel, CPT Hasselman was a soccer scholarship athlete for all four years and ended her final year as one of the Team Captains. She also played for The Citadel Women’s Intramural Rugby Team as a senior. She was one of the first two female cadets in school history selected to the Chapel Color Guard part of the class of 2007. She was a member of Campus Crusade for Christ and the international public speaking group Toastmaster’s. CPT Hasselman was selected as a Squad Corporal, Squad Sergeant, and Platoon Leader for Romeo Company. She was a Platoon Leader for Athletic Cadre ’06. As a cadet she was on the Commandant’s Distinguished Service List, Gold Stars, and a Hemingway Award Nominee for her senior class. She also received a ROTC Scholarship her senior year.

Before her current assignment as the 6the Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment Intelligence Officer, 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division (1/1 AD) at Ft. Bliss, Texas, CPT Hasselman was selected to stand-up and command the first ever Army-wide Female Engagement Team (FET) Company in the United States Army as a special attachment to 4th Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, 1/1 AD in preparation for further deployment to Afghanistan. The Company’s mission was to train FET to interact with the host nation population, primarily women and children, in order to aid the entire 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division during its mission in support of OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM where she would complete her second Afghanistan deployment.

CPT Hasselman’s previous assignments include The Citadel as a Gold Bar Recruiter, 2nd Infantry Division Combat Aviation Brigade, Camp Humphrey’s, South Korea as the Brigade Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Planner, United States Forces-Afghanistan Combined Joint Intelligence Operation Center-Afghanistan, Headquarters International Security Assistance Forces, Afghanistan as an Insurgency and Socioeconomic Development Intelligence Analyst, and 1/1 AD, Ft.Bliss as the Brigade Assistant Intelligence Officer.

CPT Hasselman’s military education includes Imagery Intelligence Officer Course, Geospatial Intelligence Requirements Management Course, Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence Operations Management Course, Military Intelligence Captain’s Career Course, Military Intelligence Basic Officer Leadership Course, and Basic Officer Leadership Course II.

Her military awards include the Bronze Star Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Commendation Medal (2nd Award), Army Achievement Medal (3rd Award), National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star (3rd Award), Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Korean Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon with Numeral 2, and the NATO ISAF Service Medal.

Editor’s note: A memorial service for Capt. Kelly Hasselman will be held on May 7, 2014 at 1030 hours in 1AD chapel at Fort Bliss.


Citadel basketball player Matt Van Scyoc plans to transfer after losing honor code appeal

April 25, 2014

Accused of violating The Citadel’s honor code, basketball player Matt Van Scyoc held out hope of remaining at the military school after filing an appeal. That appeal has been rejected, and Van Scyoc – a rising junior and the Bulldogs’ top scorer last season – confirmed Thursday that he will be leaving The Citadel after two seasons.

“The only comment I wish to make right now is that I was accused of an honor violation and found to be in violation. I appealed the decision and eventually lost,” Van Scyoc said in a statement to The Post and Courier.The Citadel’s honor code states that “a cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do.”

A 6-6 forward from Green Lake, Wis., Van Scyoc averaged 14.3 points and 5.3 rebounds for the 7-26 Bulldogs last year, shooting 36.5 percent from 3-point range. As a freshman, he scored 11.1 points per game and was named to the Southern Conference all-freshman team. “I leave The Citadel having built some very strong relationships with my coaches, teammates and fellow Citadel classmates,” Van Scyoc said. “I will take everything I have learned in my two years here with me to my new destination and wish nothing but great success for the team next season.”

When he transfers to another program, Van Scyoc will have to sit out one season and will have two seasons of eligibility left. Citadel coach Chuck Driesell said the Bulldogs will be able to sign a third player for the incoming recruiting class to replace Van Scyoc. They’ve already signed 6-7 post player Nadi Beciri and 6-4 shooting guard Jake Wright.

“Matt brought a lot to us on and off the court,” Driesell said. “He certainly will be missed. But in situations like this, I’m confident that the young men we’ve got coming back and the freshmen we have coming in will work hard as they normally do, and find a way to replace what we lose. “Matt had some great relationships with our team and our coaches, and with The Citadel,” Driesell said. “It’s just an unfortunate situation.”

Driesell said he could not comment on the nature of Van Scyoc’s honor code violation.

The Citadel’s top basketball player, rising junior Matt Van Scyoc, will leave the program, two sources have confirmed to The Post and Courier.

Van Scyoc, a 6-6 forward from Green Lake, Wis., averaged a team-best 14.3 points and 5.3 rebounds for the 7-26 Bulldogs last season, shooting 36.5 percent from 3-point range. As a freshman in 2012-13, he averaged 11.1 points and was named to the Southern Conference all-freshman team.

Neither Van Scyoc nor coach Chuck Driesell could be reached for immediate comment. The sources said that Van Scyoc committed a violation of the military school’s honor code.

Citadel says possible hazing was a prank

Knobs do the damnedest things after they are recognized!

Citadel officials say that a photo posted to Instagram that appears to depict an alleged incident of hazing is just a prank. The Post and Courier alerted the military college to the photo after receiving an email containing the image. The photo, which is a screen shot of the image posted to Instagram, appears to show seven male cadets wearing Citadel T-shirts standing in a shower in the bathroom of a barracks with an eighth man who appears to be nude sitting on the floor with his wrists bound by duct tape.

A brief investigation by the Office of the Commandant concluded the photo was “staged as part of a prank by a group of freshman friends,” said Citadel spokeswoman Kim Keelor-Parker. The student, who was the target of the so-called prank, in an email to The Post and Courier declined to comment on the details of the photo.

Physical hazing of first-year students, known as knobs for their extremely short haircuts, is an ongoing issue at the Citadel. In the past five years, the military college has investigated several incidents of hazing, including an incident in 2009 when upperclassmen drove an unsharpened pencil into the head of a knob. In another incident in the 2011-2012 school year, a photo surfaced showing a freshman cadet taped to a chair in the shower in the bathroom of his barracks.
The college in its regulations for the Corps of Cadets, known as the Blue Book, lays out the school’s definition and penalties for participating in hazing. Keelor-Parker said each student is required to read and sign the book. The college’s definition of hazing includes the wrongful striking of a student by another student or one student threatening another student with violence or bodily harm. It also includes the unauthorized treatment by one student toward another student of a “tyrannical, abusive, shameful, insulting or humiliating nature.”

Under Blue Book regulations, participating in hazing or failure to stop hazing where physical injury is likely is punishable by up to expulsion. Cadets are also required to take classes to support the Citadel’s core values of honor, duty and respect which includes a class on hazing prevention.

Who will you be when no one is watching?

Jason Simmons,  Mike '00

Jason Simmons, Mike ’00

By Jason Simmons, Class of 2000

Young men and women of the class of 2017, I would like to congratulate you on completing your knob year. Having been through the system myself, I know this is a day you have dreamed about for a long time. While it marks an important transition in your cadet career, I hope it is an even more important transitioning point of your life: you are no longer seen as a follower, but a leader.
At the conclusion of today’s Gauntlet, I witnessed an exchange that took place in my old barracks, 3rd battalion. Two exhausted and elated members of the class of 2017 were embracing one another shouting “It’s over! We did it!” While I have been there, and I totally get it, I have the unfortunate duty to inform you that it’s not over. In fact, it is just beginning. You probably set a goal at the beginning of the year to make it to Recognition Day. And while it was a goal, it was not THE goal. You did not come to The Citadel simply to finish Knob Year. Likewise, you did not come to The Citadel simply to learn how to follow- but to lead, to stand out, to be different.

Oath Renewal on The Citadel Green
And as difficult as knob year was, the next three years of your cadet career will be just as difficult if not more. It only makes sense- more is expected of a leader. You may wonder how things get more difficult than they were this year. Let me explain. You just completed a year of your life where you have had very few choices to make, few forks in the road, and almost no gray area. You have been under constant supervision- in the barracks, in the class room, in the mess hall. Your every move and every action has been under scrutiny and surveillance. Your appearance, your dress. You’ve had someone tell you how your hair must be cut, how to walk, how to talk, when to study, when to sleep, how to clean your room, even how to chew your food.

You may not have noticed while you were walking in the gutter, but everybody had their eyes on you. Always happy to give you a little “advice.” But in three weeks or so, you will depart The Citadel for summer leave, and you will leave behind the rules, and the constant supervision, and the straight and narrow path that has been laid out for you and you will be back into the outside world. A world full of choices. With no one looking over your shoulder.

Who will you be when no one is watching?
This summer, when you are far away from the jurisdiction of the Honor Code, will you keep your word? This summer, when no one is telling you what to eat and when to exercise, will you stay in shape? When there are no white-gloved cadre watching, will you treat others with respect? Who will you be when no one is watching?

This summer, when your friend has had too much to drink and wants to drive home will you step up or will you watch him drive away? When you see a stranger that needs help, will you lend a hand or will you say “I’m too busy.”

Who will you be when no one is watching?

In simple terms, the word “Integrity” means doing the right thing even when no one is watching. Integrity, in my opinion, is an absolutely essential component of leadership. You see, simply following orders while everyone is watching is easy. Anyone could do it. But leading by example is difficult, only a select few choose to do it. It takes integrity. Now, integrity doesn’t come standard with the cost of room and board at The Citadel. It can’t be bought. You don’t receive it in the tube with your diploma when you walk across the stage at graduation. It can’t be given. Your honor and integrity are the only gifts in life that only you can give yourself, and only you can take them away. “Integrity” is one of those idealistic words we use at The Citadel along with “Honor,” and “Duty” and many others. They are heavy, meaningful words but sometimes I wonder if we use them so much that we lose the true meaning behind them.

I tend to take a more “engineering” view of the word Integrity. It’s the ability to withstand outside pressure and influences. Uncompromised. Intact. You might hear “integrity” used in this way during a natural disaster. We’ve all heard: “During the earthquake, the building maintained its integrity, it was built on a strong foundation. Or maybe, “The hurricane winds were strong, but the bridge retained its integrity. It had good bones.”

Your ability to withstand pressure and influences, while remaining true to your beliefs will define not only who you are, but how others view you- and not just this summer, but for the rest of your life. The values you hold near and dear will serve you well after your days at The Citadel are complete- from the battlefield to the boardroom. And just like those bridges and buildings I mentioned earlier that maintained their integrity, you too will have to withstand the storms that blow in and out of your life. And trust me, storms will come. Maybe it’s that “can’t miss” investment that tanks, and drains your family’s savings in an instant. Or maybe it’s the day a routine patrol turns into an ambush, and your unit is pinned down, under heavy enemy fire. Perhaps it’s the disease that comes out of nowhere and takes a parent way too soon. Or Heaven forbid, the day when your girlfriend runs off with a VMI grad.

It’s difficult times like these, when your friends and family, your troops, your coworkers- they will look to you for leadership. And I want you to know- you are capable of being that leader. You have it in you. How do I know?

Because you’ve been built on a firm foundation. You’ve got good bones. You have been making the tough choices while no one has been watching for a long time. It’s how you got here. In case you haven’t noticed, this isn’t exactly the “normal” college experience. But you made the choice to take “the road less travelled.” And it will make all of the difference.

If you don’t believe me, listen to this:
In January 1982, Florida Air Flight 90 crashed into the icy waters of the Potomac River outside Washington, DC. 84 passengers were on board, only five survived. The wreckage of the plane coupled with the ice in the river prevented normal rescue efforts on the ground. As hope began to fade and hypothermia began to set in, a US Parks Service helicopter hovered overhead and dropped a short, makeshift line to the surviving passengers in the water. According to one of the five survivors, one passenger, a 46 year old bank examiner, continued to help others reach the rescue ropes being dropped by the helicopter, repeatedly passing the lines to others instead of using it to save himself. When the other five passengers were safely ashore, the helicopter made its final approach to save the man that had saved all of the others. He was no longer there. Hypothermia set in, and he slipped beneath the water. A hero died that day. The man that passed the rope was Arland D. Williams, and he was a Citadel graduate, class of 1957.

After the crash, ABC news interviewed his old high school girlfriend. When asked how he decided to attend The Citadel, she said that he knew he wanted to be different. His only concern going in was The Citadel’s mandatory swim test. You see, Arland D. Williams, the man in the icy water that passed the lifeline to others rather than save himself was terrified of water.

What causes a man, thrust into a sudden crisis, to be the person amidst the chaos of a plane crash that others look to for leadership? I would say Arland D. Williams had a lifelong habit of doing the right things when no one was watching. You see, no one had to tell Arland Williams what to do that day. He just did it.

Our world is in desperate need of principled leaders. We need people who can withstand the storms, face the adversity, and make the tough choices- not just for the TV cameras, or the photo opp, or for the promotion. Because it’s the right thing to do. But it’s going to take a special kind of person.

Maybe that person is you.

So I must ask you again, who will you be when no one is watching?

Thank you. May God bless you, The Citadel, and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.

Citadel hoop gets commit from 6-7 Nadi Beciri

Nadi Beciri

Nadi Beciri

Posted on April 14, 2014 by Jeff Hartsell,

Citadel basketball has received a verbal commitment from Nadi Beciri, a 6-7, 240-pound post player from Bergen (N.J.) Catholic High School.

Beciri averaged 18.6 ppg and 11.5 rebounds for a team that went 20-5 last year, shooting 57 percent from the floor. He made first-team all-Bergen County and scored 1,017 points in his career.

“He had a monster senior year for us,” said Bergen Catholic coach Billy Armstrong, who played college ball at Davidson. “We play really tough inner-city, parochial school schedule, so he’s been battle tested against some of the top teams in the country.“He’s a traditional, back to the basket throwback player. I tell people he’s a poor man’s Kevin McHale — square shoulders, long arms, strong hands. He’s great at eating up space in the post. If he was an inch taller, or could jump a little higher, he’d be a high major D-I player.”

Armstrong said Beciri had a host of offers from local Division II schools and late interest from Wagner and Long Island U.
