Thank you for your generosity and for supporting the young men and women in our communities.

Looking to start an OCS recognition ceremony in your community? It begins with a commitment from a few volunteers in a given community.

OCS will be providing our new service members with the gift of the U.S. Constitution in the form of a 96-page pocket guide.

Who We Serve

Enlistees

We recognize and honor high school seniors who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation, while also providing them with planning and career resources that aid in their transition into military service.

Parents & Families

We recognize and honor the parents/guardians and families of high school seniors who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation, as well as providing them valuable information and resources to support their son or daughter’s decision to join the military.

Communities

We help communities by providing the collective networking, resources, and support of like-minded parents, veterans, families, high school and college educators, business, and other civic organizations serving members of the armed forces, all coming together for the single purpose of honoring our nation’s youngest and newest heroes.
