“My late husband, Pat Conroy, ’67, would be rightfully proud of his classmate, John Warley, and his skillfully written book of modern Citadel history, which details through well-documented research the progress that Pat believed was so essential to the school’s future and prosperity.”— Cassandra King Conroy
“A must read for Citadel Alumni. John Warley’s compelling work Stand Forever, Yielding Never tells the story of The Citadel’s past half-century of success through the eyes of its presidents. The book was thoroughly researched using The Citadel archives and personal interviews with past presidents, college and Citadel Foundation officials, Bulldog supporters, faculty and cadets.”— W.
