2001 graduate dies in Iraq

Marine 1st Lt. Dan Thomas Malcom of Brinson, Ga., died Wednesday, Nov. 10, in Iraq.

Malcom, 25, graduated from The Citadel in 2001 with a degree in business administration. He was a Dean's List student and held rank in the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. His senior year he was Lima Company executive officer.

Malcom will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Surviving are his mother and a sister. According to a Department of Defense news release, Malcom died as a result of enemy action in Al Anbar Province, Iraq. He was assigned to 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Kevin Bates, an '01 classmate, said Malcom threw himself into his military duties while at The Citadel. "Other than that he was focused mainly on his studies and friends. He was always the calm headed one of us," Bates said.

"He kinda pulled everyone together. He was always true to his beliefs and he appreciated the little things in life more than most of us do."
