"OCS Heritage Center - Fort Benning, Georgia"
In 2019 the U. S. Army Officer Candidate Schools Alumni Association (USOCSAA) opened an OCS Heritage Center in Fort Benning’s Wigle Hall. The Center is dedicated to celebrating the heritage and legacy of the more than 250,000 OCS graduates from World War II to the Global War on Terror, regardless of their branch or training location. It has a Hall of Fame room, the Alumni Association room, the OCS Today wall, and the interactive kiosk that contains stories of OCS graduates. The main gallery exhibits features stories of valor across the decades of OCS, an exhibit to honor fallen comrades, and a display to illustrate OCS school locations and history. Exhibits include donated items, shadowboxes of valor and service, words of wisdom from OCS graduates, and stories of notable graduates.
Individual OC companies are encouraged to submit photos and artifacts that contribute to the narrative. 50th Company has dedicated an exhibit that shows what OCS was like in the late Sixties and the Vietnam War era when we were in training. That is the story contained on this page.
Thanks to Scott Davis for his contribution to the Heritage Center and the production of this video
