Alan Wilson Speaks to Cadets

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson spoke to the corps of cadets at Cline Chapel on January 21, 2014.

The posting of colors, the Pledge opf Allegiance and an introduction by Colonel Boland preceded the program. Col. Boland described Wilson to the cadets as “the state’s top legal counsel” and a man of military service. Wilson served as an artillery officer and achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army.

Wilson spoke to the cadets about Internet safety. He explained to them that the Internet was a tool, useful like a chainsaw, but dangerous as well. Based on his experience as a prosecutor of crimes against children, he told the cadets how careful they need to be when using social media.

“You don’t have to be out in the world to become a victim,” Wilson said.

Wilson then spoke to the cadets about leadership. He explained how leadership and rank are not about perks and privileges, but about service. He talked about different types of leaders and different styles of leadership.

“The lowest ranked guy in a squad can be a leader,” he said.

Wilson finished his talk, answering numerous questions from cadets.
