15 Soldiers commission as second lieutenants By Sgt. 1st Class Theanne Tangen SDNG Public Affairs Office MOUNT RUSHMORE NATIONAL PARK, S.D. – Fifteen South Dakota Army National Guard Soldiers took the Oath of Office and commissioned as second lieutenants during a ceremony Saturday, Aug. 16, at Mount Rushmore National Park. The second lieutenants recently completed Officer Candidate School through the SDNG 196th Regiment, Regional Training Institute, at Fort Meade, the first step in their officer training and development. The guest speaker for the ceremony Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch, adjutant general of the SDNG, explained to audience members what it means to commission as an officer. “Receiving a commission as a second lieutenant puts an officer on a distinct career path that can lead to the very top of our organization,” said Reisch. “These 15 Soldiers were initially selected and approved for the OCS program based on the potential others saw in them. Their successful completion of this course is absolu ...

Yesterday I had some time to reflect on what happened 45 years ago: May 27, 1969 was a great day for me. My mom, dad, brother, sister, grandfather, grandmother and girl friend (ex-wife but still dear friend) were all at Fort Sill to see me commissioned as a 2LT in the Field Artillery. I have been back at Fort Sill now for nearly ten years and a few things really struck home: 1. I now have the keys to Building 3025 at Fort Sill (I reported to that building in November 1968 to begin Officer Candidate School). At that time it was the OCS Headquarters. Now it’s the Fort Sill Artillery OCS Hall of Fame. 2. I took care of some business in Building 3025 yesterday afternoon and as I left I took a look at the sign out front, displaying the names of the occupants in charge: Mr. Randy Dunham and Mrs. Penny Dunham. Very Humbling. 3. On May 27, 1969 I certainly never thought about where I would be or what I would be doing exactly 45 years later. 4. Then some other things came to mind: I was wrapping ...

Yesterday my little brother Zachary Weinbaum started Marines Officer Candidate School. Even though I don't understand half the things he does and sometimes explain to people he's a pilot in the army/navy/something else incorrect I'm so proud of him. Love you Zachy-hope they have lots of hummus to keep you going!
Thought a lot of my father over this holiday. He was in the Air Force in WWII . He was a tail gunner and radio man .. He told many stories of his wartime experiences , but what really told the tail was when I came across the paperwork detailing some of his missions and the recognitions .. He was awarded a purple heart and the distinguished flying cross . One of his missions was the bombing of the polesty oil fields ...the pivitol move that pretty much shut down the enemy. He had bee reccomended for officer candidate school , on his way to be a pilot . The paperwork stopped there . Nothing more , and I know he never became a pilot . When I asked my mother about it she pulled out a picture of him that I had never seen before . Wow , his eyes looked like he had seen a thousand ghosts .He was honorably discharged with battle fatigue . He loved his country and served proudly .

I am currently attending USMC Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia and will have very limited communication for the next 6 weeks. I'll reply to texts and FB messages when I get the opportunity. Thank you to all of those who have helped me along the way.
Memorial Day is a time for us to remember and honor all those that choose to serve their country. These men and women who are willing to put the needs and protection of many over their own. Their duty, to protect and serve the United States and the citizens. whatever is required of them..Their lives and memories should always be remembered by those that got to live in freedom due to the the soldiers, sailors and airmen. For me however, there is one who stands out as an example of the honor , bravery and sense of duty . The post may be long but it is a story worth telling. It was my father Ray M. Carson.The two attached photos show the full spectrum of his career. In the first one, a young newly commissioned Second Lieutenant sits for a portrait before heading to the Korean War. In the second photo , Colonel (ret.) Carson stands by his parents grave in Arlington. His father was a veteran of WW 1. Ray Carson joined the military in 1950 as a private. The 1952, he took the opportunity to attend officer candi ...

My interview (1995) with MOH recipient Maj. Robert H. Dunlap, USMC (Ret.). It may also be read on by website at www.lancebooks.com. R.I.P. Bobby. Zedric: When did you enter the Marine Corps? DUNLAP: I enlisted in February 1942. I was graduated early from Monmouth College [Illinois] because of the war and went straight to Quantico, Virginia for Officer Candidate School. Zedric: Where did you go after OCS? DUNLAP: I was commissioned at Quantico, and then I attended the Officer’s Training Course there. Zedric: What was your first assignment?

Happy Memorial Day! Today I did the crossfit MURPH workout and today I remember this and many of my brothers who fell defending our country. Thank you all for your courage and sacrifice. "Murph" For time: 1 mile Run 100 Pull-ups 200 Push-ups 300 Squats 1 mile Run Murph” is a CrossFit Hero WOD named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. He was 29, of Patchogue, N.Y. Lt Murphy was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor after his death. The workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it ‘Body Armor.’ It first appeared on the CrossFit site 18 August 2005. Engaged in a frenzied firefight and outnumbered by the Taliban, Navy Lt. Michael Murphy made a desperate decision as he and three fellow SEALs fought for their lives on a rocky mountainside in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province in 2005. In a last-ditch effort to save his team, Murphy pulled out his satellite phone, walked into a clearing to get reception and called for reinforcements as a fusilla ...
Some mourn the loss of beloved family members or comrades in arms, who gave the most precious gift they had - their very life's breath - for the cause of country and in the name of honor. Some of us haven't had our lives touched personally by such a loss. I fell into that group of Americans until May of last year. It was then that I met Lieutenant Kyle N. Drake... Son of Texas, Aggie, USMC, KIA at Iwo Jima... or at least became acquainted with the spirit of the man. And then we introduced him to you, through his wartime Aggie senior boots and other personal effects. Through research on these ephemeral items, I tried to flesh out who he was. I learned that he was a hardworking son of a South Texas rancher. He studied animal husbandry at A&M to follow in his daddy's footsteps. He had a *** of a sense of humor, was respectful and athletic, and always up for an adventure. With no kin left to tell his story, I hoped that I did him justice. The responsibility was a heavy one. There was one thing that I couldn' ...
My son Dan Miller, is on his way to Quantico today; back to Marine Officer Candidate School! His foot is healed, and he only has 6 weeks of "boot camp" this time (he finished 7 of the 10 weeks last time, then broke his foot). Nice that there is a shorter program available in the summer. Praying that all will go as planned, and by the 4th of July, he will be Lieutenant Dan! (his joke) I am so proud of you Dan!! ~~I believe there is a reason for everything, and I think maybe he needed to be back in Arizona this spring to meet a certain lovely young lady, Allie Anderson, who is also sending along her prayers and well-wishes~~ : ))
Well the time has finally arrived. I am finally leaving for Officer candidate School. See y'all in six weeks!

Lots of folks forget that this is what Memorial Day is for: James Regan was born on June 27, 1980, in Manhasset, New York, where he grew up and showed impressive athletic and academic talent from an early age. According to the Manhasset Press, Regan graduated high school with honors in 1998. He was an All American in lacrosse and an All State Scholar in football. James, known as Jimmy to his friends, was awarded a lacrosse scholarship to Duke University, where he helped the Blue Devils win the ACC Championship for two consecutive years. At Duke Jimmy met and fell in love with Mary McHugh, an Atlanta native, to whom he would later become engaged. Both graduated from Duke; Mary went on to the Emory University School of Medicine, while Regan, with a bachelor's degree in economics, was offered a job by the Swiss-based global financial services firm UBS. He was also offered a scholarship to the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. Jimmy Regan turned down both of these prestigious offers to enlis ...
THE COURAGE OF SAM BIRD By B. T. Collins I met CPT Samuel R. Bird on a dusty road near An Khe, South Vietnam, one hot July day in 1966. I was an artillery forward observer with Bravo Company, 2nd/12th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division, and I looked it. I was filthy, sweaty, and jaded by war, and I thought "Oh, brother, get aload of this". Dressed in crisply starched fatigues, Captain Bird was what we called "squared away" - ramrod straight, eyes on the horizon. *** you could still see the shine on his boot tips beneath the road dust. After graduation from Officer Candidate School, I had sought adventure by volunteering for Vietnam. But by that hot and dangerous July, I was overdosed on "adventure," keenly interested in survival and very fond of large rocks and deep holes. Bird was my fourth company commander, and my expectations were somewhat cynical when he called all his officers and sergeants together. "I understand this company has been in Vietnam almost a year and has never had a party," he said. No ...

When you are commanding, leading men under conditions where physical exhaustion and privations must be ignored, where the lives of men may be sacrificed, then, the efficiency of your leadership will depend only to a minor degree on your tactical ability. - General George C. Marshall, speaking to the first graduating class of the Officer Candidate School, Fort Benning, Sept 1941; quoted in Roger H. Nye, The Challenge of Command, 1986
Jacob Close, Sylvania, Ohio, passed away Tuesday, April 22, 2014, at the age of 94. He was born May 6, 1919, in Toledo to the late Max and Dora Close, who immigrated from Russia in 1912. The fourth of six children, Jacob was a precocious child who started kindergarten at age 4 and excelled in academics. He grew up in the Roaring '20s, helping out around his father's shoe repair shop, playing in neighborhood football games, and roller skating the streets of Toledo. His family worked hard six days a week, but always made time for Sunday dinners and occasional picnics and trips to the zoo. Jacob was a cheerleader at Scott High School, and graduated in 1936. After graduation, he worked as a grocery store manager. In 1941, he joined the U.S. Army and served as an infantryman in the 37th Infantry Division, or "Buckeye Division" of Ohio's National Guard. Jacob began his military career as an enlisted man, and was commissioned as an officer through Officer Candidate School. During World War II he deployed to the ...

I'm proud of my military family and my heritage. Being a member of a family who has so many people who have served their country is a very big source of pride for me, and since I work with a veteran based company, I consider myself very fortunate to work with so many great men and women who have served their country. I'd like to introduce you all to my military family, starting with my grandfather James Taylor Hamilton. "Jim" Hamilton was born in Glen Campbell, Indiana County, PA on February 9, 1914. His father Robert Hamilton was a miner, and his mother Anne was a housewife. At the time of his birth his mother was 19, his father was 23. My grandfather only completed 8 years of grammar school, yet was almost put into Officer Candidate School after his ASR test results indicated he finished just a few points shy of the requirement. He was drafted into the Army in New Cumberland PA, and began his service on February 14, 1942. He deaprted for Europe on November 2, 1940 and was soon in the European Theater of ...

It's not in any particular order, and the younger generation may not recognize many of these Hollywood star names of the past.

Four years later I was back in the Navy as I had a house payment, a wife and a son and a daughter a few weeks short of being born, AND there were no jobs available in San Diego because we were still coming out of a recession. I could not get a job interview. So, since I was a former nuke, I asked the Navy about Officer Candidate School, and they accepted me. I had a darn good time as a Junior officer, but a head hunter hired me away to work Data communications management for Pacific Bell (AT&T). I worked that for 17 years. They paid me too much, so I retired at age 52 and have been writing books and having a wonderful time with life. MY division officer on the Truxtun was Iron Mike Hallett (football player for the academy). After I was commissioned in 1978, I was in Subic walking towards the main gate, and who should come walking towards me, but none other than Iron Mike. I salute . ...
So Edward Jones has graciously accepted my request and will postpone my interview process so that I may attend Officer Candidate School. I feel so blessed and thankful for the opportunity of continuing my chance at this career and to possibly become an Army Officer. Much thanks to all the NCOs that have helped me along the way during my time as an enlisted.
I have an opportunity to make some dreams a reality through the Army Officer Candidate School. As my packet goes before another medical review board I ask for everyone's prayer that it pass. I'm praying to use this opportunity to make things better for my family, soliders, and self.
I am sad to report I did not get a 110 GT score on my asvab.I got a 113! Officer Candidate School here I COME!!! HOAH!
My mom is not only okay with me applying to Officer Candidate School in the Marines, she's encouraging me to do so. Am I dreaming?
Richard Winters Richard D. *** Winters was a United States Army officer and decorated war veteran. He commanded Company "E", 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, during World War II. Wikipedia Died: January 2, 2011, Hershey, PA People also search for: William Guarnere, Carwood Lipton, More Books: Beyond Band of Brothers Education: Officer Candidate School (1942–1942), Franklin & Marshall College (1937–1941). He was just in the movie that I watched. I have been watching the movie band of brothers for the past week it's really good and this guy is a great inspiration
Good luck to Benjamin Treseler, Benjamin Lyles, William Hinkamp, and Greg Gonzalez who shipped to Officer Candidate School this morning. Today is the next step in their quest to become a Marine Officer.
Officer Candidate School in Virginia for the Marines lol you know this!
I will be checking into Officer Candidate School in a few hours and then the 10 weeks of "fun" begins. Please keep my family and I in all of your thoughts and most of all your prayers as I embark upon this journey to becoming a Marine Officer.
should join and go to Officer candidate school. It'll be fun.
Get your Bachelor's. Join Officer Candidate school in a branch of the military. Become a lieutenant and get your loans paid.
Did you know. After graduating from Officer Candidate School in 1959, Peter Boyle (most well-known for his role...
Communications going dark in 2 hours. I had a nice holiday break now back to training. If anyone wants to write letters my address will be: OC Adam Jackson Officer Candidate School Class 08-14D Officer Training Command Newport 1356 Meyerkord Avenue Newport, RI 02841-1641
This time next week I'll be at Officer Candidate School to begin my career. Stoked, this week can't go by quick enough.
I remember his drill sergeant saying he should go to officer candidate school after he did that.
My son Ben just left for Quantico Virginia to attend the Marine Corp Officer Candidate School on a flight contract! Go get 'em Ben Meinjohans, proud of you!
A week to go until OCS! For those who would like to send me some motivational mail, my address is: Officer Candidate Jeremy Aaron Officer Candidate School Class 09-14 Officer Training Command Newport 1356 Meyerkord Ave. Newport, RI 02841 Chances are I will not write back for a while, if at all, but it'd still be great to get! And keep it simple, write on regular paper and plain envelopes! Anchors Aweigh!
I miss Dax McDaniel horribly. However, we will meet again, and I do take comfort in that. He's the most amazing man, and I'm sure will do more than the average in OCS. I invite you all with me in sending him the upmost positive energies all throughout his duration in Officer Candidate School.
Just got medically qualified to join the Marines...looks like going to Officer Candidate School this summer is actually a possibility!
Congrats to Alma Ruelas who was selected on the last PLC board! She will be attending Marine Corps Officer Candidate School this summer in Quantico Va.
Pocket paradigms A lot of folks like the center because it makes them sound reasonable and moderate. It also allows them to call other people extremists or gadflies or wishful thinkers for disagreeing with the conventional wisdom of the moment. Some members of the American elite have made whole careers of being measured and cautious. They like to write somber columns asking pompous questions like "Can the Center Hold?" What they really mean is: can they hold on to their power? But even if you do find the center, it's not necessarily the best place to be. My navigation instructor at Coast Guard Officer Candidate School explained it well: "If you take a navigational fix and it places you on one side of a rock and then you take another fix and it places you on the other side of the rock -- don't split the difference." Unfortunately, it's a rule not often followed in American politics.- Sam Smith
American Greatness - Soldiers' Stories SEAL Michael Murphy Michael Patrick Murphy (May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL posthumously awarded the United States military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in 2005 during the War in Afghanistan. He was the first person to be awarded the medal for actions in Afghanistan; and the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. Michael Murphy was born and raised in Suffolk County, New York. After graduating from Penn State with honors and dual degrees in both political science and psychology, Murphy was accepted to several law schools, but decided to attend SEAL mentoring sessions at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. In September 2000, he accepted an appointment to the U.S. Navy’s Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida. On December 13 of that year, he was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy and began Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training in Coronado, Ca .. ...
I know what you're saying and there's always officer candidate school!
I'm an OSU Grad and fan, but not an anti-OU, OSU fan as can be seen by my shirt. As much as I hated OSU to lose to OU(again), I was hoping OU would annihilate Alabama but mainly for selfish reasons. "Suck it" Alabama OCS(Officer Candidate School) Cadre who gave me all kinds of crap for being from Oklahoma. I wish you many sleepless nights and inner turmoil over the loss to the inferior State of Oklahoma.
I kinda, well really, wanna do Marine Corp Officer Candidate School, Navy as a combat corpman, or just move somewhere cool after I graduate this summer, need a change in scenery!
Well, it's been fun and relaxing. My family, friends, and especially Marie made sure this few days of leave was well spent. Thank you to all of you. Now...I return back to Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island for four more weeks of 'fun and adventure'! Let's do this.
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of MG (Ret) Nicholas P. Kafkalas. Here is his obituary; An icon of the greatest generation, MG (Ret) Nicholas P. Kafkalas, 93, of Camp Hill, died peacefully in his home on Tuesday, December 31st. Born September 1, 1920 in Monessen, PA, to Peter and Pearl (Burk) Kafkalas, Nick was an exceptional student (the other students called him "The Pro," short for the Professor) and graduated two years early from high school, then enlisted in the PA Army National Guard in 1939. When WWII broke out, he attended OCS (Officer Candidate School), and then was assigned to the 54th Infantry, 10th Armored Division, serving as a rifle company commander in the European theatre. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge, was wounded in battle on the last day of February 1945, treated in an English hospital and sent back to Germany right after VE Day. He returned home in November 1945, and attended the University of Pittsburgh, and received his B.A. in Political Science in 1949. Dur . ...
Naval Slang Terms The Navy has a long and colorful history, one that matches the naval slang terms sailors use with aplomb. The slang is genuinely funny, once you get someone to explain to what all those acronyms mean. It is often developed to say something colorful without getting into trouble with the brass. The slang communicates a very wry sense of humor, with an arched eyebrow towards officers, protocol, and anyone with a supercilious attitude. It’s All in the Numbers The “90 day wonder” - this is the mocking description designated for officers who just graduated from the Officer Candidate School. Sailors also typically expand upon the description with sallies such as “90 day blunder” or “90 day miracle.” Women are at a premium at sea, and sailors are extremely attentive...but a woman who may not be a beauty queen on land becomes one when members of her sex are in the extreme minority. Sailors call a less than gorgeous woman a “2-10-2”; that is, she’s a 2 on a scale of 10 when you ...
My New Year resolution of which I've never cared to do before is to finish my 200 hrs of internship and my 7 ARE's and become a registered architect as well as taking the LEED AP exam and becoming a LEED AP. Also to get back into shape for Officer Candidate School!
Recap of the year: Met some outstanding people. Found some positive influence in my life. Passed the hardest phase of officer candidate school even when my own OCS recruiter doubted me. And best of all, Got reacquainted with an old friend who will walk this journey of life with me. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, but I've had some good times and it was worth it. My hopes are that 2014 will top that. I guess I will have to stay tuned! Happy New year's everyone!
These Army years have been fun, stressful, demanding, life-changing, and above all, unpredictable. 2009 saw a cross-country move, Basic Training in Kentucky with Ryan Owen Williams and Officer Candidate School in Georgia with Natasha Fultz. 2010 brought two more moves with the family to Georgia and North Carolina before 2011 sent me to Iraq with Jonathan Gribben and Kuwait with Jessica Yahn. 2012 welcomed me back to Fort Bragg with never-ending work days with Patrick Mitchell that made me yearn for another deployment. 2013 began with recovering from a botched ankle surgery and a fond farewell to Active Duty with Ryan Dolak. After another cross-country trip, me and Lina M. G. Martin are back where we started in sunny LA. After 9 years of marriage, life is good. It's hard. It's unpredictable. But it sure is good!
In 2013 I went to Basic training, moved into my dream apartment, found a man who is unbelievably special, and started Army officer candidate school. It has been a pretty big year and I am SOOO excited to start 2014. I love choosing happiness!!
2013.. Has been a roller coaster for me. This year: I was blessed to return from a deployment knowing it would be my last (in the foreseeable future) safely. I am leaving an organization of the most professional and lethal fighting force I have ever witnessed. It has been an honor to serve with each if you. I was awarded an extremely prestigious award for something anyone in my formation would have done. I lost a very good friend during a training accident. This one hit me very hard and you are missed very much WOC Darrell Mc Nealy. I completed Warrant Officer Candidate School. And I am currently still in training. My family is healthy and growing quicker then I would like. For those of you still reading this, let share a drink with those that are not able to. Remember them while gathering with friends and family. Please be safe everyone and have a blessed new year.
2013 Reflections: This was a very difficult and challenging year; I endured a very emotional divorce and let go of the one thing I was determined to achieve; Officer Candidate School. I never knew or understood the power of emotion (love), its impact on one’s spirit or its ramifications … I knew deep inside I was resilient and wouldn’t endure my difficulties alone. I learned a great deal (and continue to) about myself. I learned quickly that my strength came from- morals, values, faith; from my daughters, aunts, brothers, friends, besties (Case for ALWAYS siding with me, Jayme for going with me on my unknown adventures), exes (lol), and my loving co-workers at WPD (Lucy sharing diet Coke with me). Positive things also happened this year; I received my Master’s with a 4.0 GPA (last semester), started body building with awesome results, ran a 10k and took 1st place, Received an autograph from VON MILLER, attended the best BRONCOS game ever, FIRST TIME GRANDMA lol, found my 3rd white hair, watched on ...

The most decorated marine in history chesty puller served in the banana wars, both world wars, and Korea received 5 navy cross's an army distinguished service cross, silver star, bronze star, and purple heart. And led the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines during the battle of Guadalcanal, Battle of Henderson Field, Battle of Cape Gloucester,and the Battle of Peleliu. When he was growing up in Virgina Puller grew up listening to old veterans' tales of the Civil War and idolizing Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. then when he heard of the heroic actions of the 5th marines at Belleau Wood he enlisted in the Marine Corps then went to OCS(Officer Candidate School). After Graduation he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps but because of reduction in force from 73,000 to 1,100 officers and 27,400 men following the war led to his being put on inactive status 10 days later and given the rank of corporal. As a corporal, Puller received orders to serve in the Gendarmerie d'Haiti as a lieutenant, seeing action ...
A Mother's Prayer for Her Soldier Son Man's best friend teaches her son the priceless lesson that kindness always pays. By Gloria Cassity Stargel, Gainesville, Georgia The day our younger son Rick left home for the Marine Corps was a heart-wrenching one for me. Beside the fact that I just hate good-byes, this was my “baby” going off to become a fighting man. I couldn’t help worrying that military training would destroy Rick’s loving, compassionate spirit. Dear Lord, make him tough, if necessary. But, please, Lord, I prayed, keep him tender. Now who but a mother would make a request like that? Rick endured the rigors of basic training and Officer Candidate School. Then, after advanced instruction, he was assigned to the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, North Carolina. There—seeking a little off-duty peace and quiet of his own—he rented a small house out in the country. Always athletic, he looked forward to the solitude of his daily six-mile run along picturesque fields and meadows. A p ...

Revised 7/03 -- Paul Maloney's service information has been added. (Thanks, Paul!) That necessitated a correction in the number of officers and in the totals listed for the USA and USMC. (See next paragraph): Subject: Prep Grads on active duty in the Military, 9/11/2001 – Present Several Generalizations: Since 9/11/2001, eighty-six (86) Prep Alums have served (or are serving) in the U.S. Military. Of those, seventy-eight (78) have served as commissioned officers, including one who entered as an enlisted man and then later received a commission through Officer Candidate School (OCS). One alum has served as a warrant officer, and seven have served as enlisted men, including at least four non-commissioned officers (one corporal and three sergeants). I am still checking on the three others. The service breakdown is as follows: USN=29; USA=27; USMC=25; USAF=5 JUST TWO GUYS LEFT TO VERIFY SERVICE DATES and/or rank: John Rico and Napoleon “Paul” Magpantay.

My modest contribution to Memorial Day: In the summer of 2008 I was stationed at Fort Benning, GA as the Chaplain for Officer Candidate School. I had agreed to perform a wedding in Kalamazoo, MI for a former Captain with whom I had deployed to Kuwait and Iraq the year before. My journey began at the Atlanta airport. After experiencing the agony of airport security, I made my way to the gate, and the flight was getting ready to board. I ran into 15 members of the Michigan National Guard who had just flown 20 hours from Kuwait and were flying with us to Chicago and then on to Michigan. None of them had a cell phone, so I gave them mine, and they took turns calling their loved ones to let them know they were safe and sound on U.S. soil. I looked around the packed terminal for anyone to volunteer their cell phone, but everyone averted my eyes. Finally a woman stepped forward and handed me her phone. By the time we boarded the aircraft all of the Soldiers had either made contact or left a message with a family ...

Link: COLLEGE STUDENT PRE-COMMISSIONING INITIATIVE (SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM) Imagine having your college junior and senior years fully funded. Now imagine getting a salary while you complete your college degree. That's what the College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative (CSPI) scholarship program offers college sophomores and juniors. Better yet, this scholarship provides students with valuable leadership, management, law enforcement, navigation and marine science skills and training. It also provides full payment of school tuition, fees, textbooks, salary, medical insurance, and other benefits during a student's junior and senior year of college. The CSPI program's goal is to train future officers for success and prepare them for the rigors of Officer Candidate School (OCS). Each student is expected to complete his/her degree and all Coast Guard training requirements within 24 months after acceptance into the program. This includes attending Basic Training following selection, performing Coast Guard duties ...
