This new OCS Heritage Center will feature displays and information covering:

There will be galleries honoring fallen OCS graduates and Medal of Honor recipients. Interactive Kiosks will feature OCS Hall of Fame Honorees, Distinguished OCS Graduates plus Patterson and Nett Awardees.

OCS “Success Stories” will be highlighted along with biographies and personal glimpses into individuals who have excelled in both the military and commercial worlds.

The OCS Heritage Center will honor what Officer Candidate Schools have meant to the U.S. Army and America. It’s the way to preserve the legacy of the more than 250,000 OCS graduates regardless of their school or training location. Whether you were in the Infantry, Armor, Artillery, Engineering or Transportation, or one of the other 11 schools, all will be honored at the Heritage Center at Fort Benning.
