"The commander stands for the virtues of
wisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage, and strictness"
This program is designed to be integrated as part of an overall plan to prepare Marine option midshipmen for OCS training. It is NOT an all encompassing, "written in stone" program that should be followed blindly. The spirit and intent of this program is three fold
· To standardize the basic knowledge that a future Marine officer should know prior to going to OCS
· To provide a gradual and progressive time schedule for the acquisition of the knowledge
· To provide reasonable goals within a midshipman’s capability to reach.
Candidates who are headed for OCS, though not assigned to a NROTC unit, can use this as an outline to work with your Officer Selection Officer to better prepare you for the challenges of OCS.
