Army Officer Candidate School (OCS) Training
Fourteen N.D. Army National Guard Officer Candidates (OC) from two different classes recently conducted training at Camp Grafton Training Center (CGTC) from June 2 to 7, 2020 in preparation for their next challenge in pursuit of their gold lieutenant bars.
Nine Soldiers from OCS Class 64 completed Phase Zero. This block of training included the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT), drill and ceremony, day/night land navigation, a 4-mile run and a 4-mile ruck march. Class 64 is scheduled for Phase I training at Fort Meade, S.D. in July.
Five members from Class 63 completed Phase II training which included Field Leadership Exercises (FLX) that allowed them to hone their troop leading procedures, communication skills, map reading and basic infantry tactics at the platoon and squad levels. Other training included two 4-mile runs, basic rifle marksmanship, 9mm pistol qualification, an APFT and a ceremonial dining-in. These activities helped prepare them for Phase III scheduled for July at Camp Rapid, S.D. After successful completion of this phase, these OCs will be commissioned as 2nd lieutenants on August 15 during a ceremony at CGTC.
