A makeshift plaque stands in front of the Citadel's Summerall Chapel with the names of the 13 graduates who have died in Iraq or Afghanistan. The school will honor all the dead with an official plaque after major military operations end, school officials says. Below is a list of all of the Citadel grads who have died in combat during the history of the United States, though it should be noted that early records are difficult to confirm.
