Class of 2023
Recognition Day
Challenge Coins

3/31/2020 UPDATE:  The coins are on campus and as soon as we get permission to be on campus we will be sending the orders out to everyone. I am trying to keep everyone up to date through posts on the Citadel Family Association facebook page as well as the 2023 page. Please be sure that if you are a parent or legal guardian of a cadet that you join those 2 pages to stay up to date on the latest news from The Citadel as well as the CFA. We thank you for your patience and continued support. With the conditions of the  COVID19 shutdown our Citadel Family Association Emergency Cadet fund may be in great demand this year to assist as many cadets as we possibly can. I am working closely with Citadel administration to get on campus ASAP.  Currently Charleston is under Shelter In Place, so we are working to get approval to be on campus even for just a couple hours. 


3/15/2020 UPDATE:  Given the schedule changes with Corp Day & Recognition Day at The Citadel due to the Wuhan Coronavirus, alternative arrangements are being made to for distributing the 2023 Coins:  Here is the latest update from the

“Good afternoon. Yes we are making other arrangements to get the coins to either the cadet or the parent.  As of now we will be getting back to campus on the 23rd and from there we will be organizing the orders. The parents can email me (shannanmoorecfa@gmail.com) for their choice of options:  1) give to their cadet 2) send it to the address listed on their order.  If the cadets are unable to return to campus then we will be sending them all out to the addresses we have.”




The Citadel Family Association and The Citadel Alumni Association have partnered (via the Greenville Citadel Club) to offer cadet families and alumni this year’s 2020 Recognition Day Challenge Coins. This “2020 Recognition Day Challenge Coin” will be the new standard, and we are so pleased to offer this coin to all future classes. What is most important about this new tradition is that 100% of our proceeds will be going to a newly established “Cadet Emergency Relief Fund” to directly assists cadets during times of great difficulty. As such, the entire Citadel community thanks you for your purchase(s).

PRE-ORDER TODAY!!!  Pricing for these coins will be $15 via this online store. ONLINE SALES END FRIDAY, 14 February!

A short supply will be manufactured for day-of sales priced at $20. Coins will be distributed via the Citadel Family Association tent in front of 2nd Battalion on the afternoon of Friday, 27 March.

If anyone has questions, please post them on CFA Facebook pages so that other parents can benefit.
