Clarence Renneker describes The Citadel during the 1939-1943 period. After graduating with a degree in Business, he was sent to Ft. Benning where he received his commission in the Army's 80th Infantry Division. In June 1944, after arriving in England, he was reassigned to the 118th Infantry Division in charge of basic training for newly enlisted troops. After the armistice was signed in Germany, Renneker was in charge of coordinating the extensive post-war duty of returning troops home to America as well as to the Pacific Theater. He returned home to Orangeburg in 1946 to take over his father's clothing store.
