My brother Howard was 12 years older than I and always my ideal.  He boarded with a great aunt Lizzie in Walterboro to go to High school.  He won a Scholarship to the Citadel by making the highest grade on a Competition Exam for the whole County.  I can remember how happy we all were that he had won this and could go.  I must have been 5  when he left.
