THE OCS FOUNDATION MISSION

The OCS Foundation’s primary mission is to empower the over 750,000 graduates of OCS and their families by providing an online environment within which the various OCS Chapters, Interest Groups and Individuals may participate in active dialogs, activities and otherwise conduct OCS related business.

THE UNMET NEED

Since Officer Candidate Programs were first founded in 1941 over 750,000 individuals have graduated from the various branch programs, most notably Senator Robert Dole, General Tommy Franks and Major Richard Winters of Band of Brothers fame. This highly professional but fragmented group has not, until now, been able to establish a viable forum in which to conduct activities related to OCS programs, business, alumni associations and areas of mutual interest and concern.

OVERVIEW OF THE OCS FOUNDATION

The OCS Foundation (OCSF) is a non-profit Title 501c19 veteran’s organization serving over 750,000 OCS and OTS graduates around the world. OCSF was conceived with the advent of ARMYOCS.COM, our pilot website, and is now the controlling organizational portal for more than 15 service branch and numerous smaller OCS related websites.

Serving as the hub for the OCS/OTS alumni community and as the primary information source for prospective OCS candidates, the OCSF community of websites currently receives over three million visitors per month and serves over 550,000 registered members.

OCSF serves to assist in the promotion and recruitment of potential candidates for OCS/OTS schools and programs by providing online forums and discussion groups. OCSF assists candidate families by providing message boards and online communities for the families of attending candidates.

OCSF is further dedicated to preserving the rich history of OCS, promoting the OCS mission and educating the military and the general public through a national OCS Hall of Fame, various service branch OCS/OTS Halls of Fame and an OCSF magazine.

On behalf of the entire OCSF organization, we welcome your support and participation.

Russell B. Watson, Chairman
