We believe in the importance of encouraging motivation, education, and preparation for future Marine Corps officers in anticipation of their trial by fire at OCS.
This blog is by a graduate of OCC-202 (fall 2009) and Marine Corps officer, active duty from 2009-2014. If you’d like to see my story from interested civilian to OCS to commissioning to TBS graduation, check out From Civilian to Marine Officer.
