"I attribute my experience at OCS as foundational to all the success that I have had in my entire life. I mean that. It changed the course of my life."

Hyrum Smith (founder of Franklin Covey Co and the Franklin Day Planner)

Artillery OCS Graduate Class 1-67


The idea for the modern Officer Candidate School for Infantry was conceived in June 1938, when a plan for an officer-training program was submitted to the Chief of Infantry by Brigadier General L. Singleton, Commandant of the Infantry School, Fort Moore, Georgia.
