After seven and a half years as commandant of the Corps of Cadets, Lt. Gen. John Van Alstyne resigned Friday.This was noted on TexAgs several days before it showed up elsewhere. The discussion is, shall we say...outspoken...on Van Alstyne's term as Commandant.
"There are good young men and women in the Corps," Van Alstyne said. "It was an honor to serve as the commandant."
Van Alstyne said he understood that the new commandant would be reporting to the vice president of student affairs Lt. Gen. Joe Weber.
Weber said no one had spoken to him "formally and specifically" about the resignation.
