|WELCOME TO THE OCS
The OCS Foundation is the
largest association of OCS/OTS/OTC graduates in
the world, encompassing the United States Army,
Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, as
well as Reserve and National Guard units.
Conceived with the
advent of ArmyOCS.com, the OCS Foundation is the
parent organization of more than fifteen major
web sites, hundreds of alumni and class pages.
OCSF websites serve over 500,000 members, gowing
by over 5,000 new members a month and completing
over 35,000,000 visitors interactions annually.
In every candidate there is one
common denominator Leadership.
This is the rare characteristic that drives each
one of us to forever be the best that we can be.
For Candidates Follow Me is
not simply a motto; it is our way of life.
The time spent attending Officer
Candidate or Officer Training School is short
relative to your career yet few experiences in
life will ever match it. Upon reflection, it is a
most memorable time. You are tested to your
mental and physical limits and dig deep inside
yourself to maintain a sense of purpose. No
candidate ever enjoyed the program, but every
candidate emerged a better person. It is the
toughest program you will ever love.
Those who preceded you have gone on
to become leaders in industry and public servants
of our great country. Alumni of OCS/OTS/OTC
include Medal of Honor recipients, Senator Robert
Dole, General Tommy Franks, Major Richard Winters
and numerous active duty generals, admirals, and
staff officers as well as thousands of reserve
officers. In the private sector, the halls of
corporate America are filled with our graduates.
The OCS Foundation
is dedicated to serving candidates, graduates and
their families. We promote the mission and
preserve the history of officer candidate schools
through our online presence and community
programs. Additional OCS Foundation sites include
OCS History, Officer Families and Army Basic.
New programs and
services are currently underway to further
enhance our services and programs. The most
exciting project under development is the new
O/Club. Scheduled to open late 2008, the O/Club
is being developed as a site where Officers,
regardless of their commissioning routes, may
exchange ideas and thoughts within the privacy of
their own online community.
We invite your
active participation in our many online forums,
class web site programs, alumni reunion
activities and family services. Join us today and
make a real difference to those who are serving
now, and those who served with you.
the OCS Foundation exists to serve you and your
family. Please let us know if there is there is
anything that we can do to improve the quality
and scope of the services we offer to you.
On behalf of the
entire OCSF organization, we welcome your support
