Thomas McDow, Citadel Class of 1963, walked 120 tours in 6 weeks by special permission. When his tours were completed he had his boots bronzed. He kept one and gave the other to the Boo, Col. Courvoisie. Col. Courvoisie kept this boot in his office. In his senior year McDow challenged the Commandant to a duel. McDow was then granted a medical discharge. (Sources: Col. T. N. Courvoisie (the Boo), and William F. Suggs, Class of 1963) (HN)
