5) This is not AOL, YIM, or your cell phone. If you are here, it is assumed you wish to seek a Commission, get information on seeking a Commission, or are a Commissioned Officer. Communicate like a professional. Use proper English, spelling and punctuation. Hint: the Google Toolbar has a spell checker built into it, and it works.

6) This is not military.com, ArmyRanger.com, A is for Army, etc., we will extend as much respect to you as you extend to others. There are rules and guidelines for use to make everyone's experience as fruitful, efficient and beneficial as possible. Expect that you will be witness to, and involved in, candid and frank exchanges. This is not the place to get a warm and fuzzy feeling for failures or stupid decisions. Our members are real Soldiers- NCOs, Officers and junior enlisted- and real people who have been, will go, or want to go to the Officer Candidate School at Ft. Benning, GA. We are here to help, do not waste our time, and we won't waste yours.



Applying to OCS:
Application checklist, letter of recommendation sample, example board questions, active duty commissioning options, warrant officer candidates.
Officer Candidates:
Required knowledge, OCS Regulations, basic training, a summary of the OCS experience, course structure, hints and tips.

  • Taking the beach in Turkey
    The Turkish national exercise, that began May 4, is being held as a mutlinational event for the first time this year, including about 7,000 service members from the U.S. Army and Navy, Azerbaijan, England, Germany, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia
  • 'Ghost Brigade' Soldiers prepare for future conflicts
    Since 1981, military personnel have come and gone through the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., to prepare for missions around the world. These month-long rotations are usually geared to prepare a unit for an upcoming mission. For the 1-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team, their May 2016 rotation to NTC was a way to hone in on those key fighting skills as a brigade.
  • Engineer paratroopers make history in Turkey
    Sky Soldiers are no strangers to making their mark in history, especially in Europe. However, this week the paratroopers and their Turkish partners carved their names side-by-side in Asia's history.
  • SMA talks Total Army and responsible drawdown with troops
    A growing concern over the troop drawdown, realignments across the total Army force, and questions of what that means to the average Soldier, were put to ease by Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel A. Dailey during his visit with deployed Soldiers in Kosovo, May 17-20.
  • 'Lead from front,' urges first Vietnamese-American U.S. general
    Viet X. Luong aspired to join an elite South Vietnamese fighting unit when he was a young boy. He didn't succeed at doing that, but he did become a U.S. Soldier and he is now a brigadier general -- the first U.S. general officer of Vietnamese descent.
