• A useful tool for anyone wanting to achieve their potential and earn a commission in the army

Are you a former soldier, sailor, or airman who left the service without getting the most out of your potential? Are you a leader in the civilian sector who knows you have more to give back to the country you love so much? If so, you should consider entering the Army, Army Reserves, or Army National Guard, earn your commission as a Second Lieutenant, and begin or restart an exciting career as a leader in the world's best military. The Ultimate Officer Candidate School Guidebook explains everything you need to know to achieve these goals.

Earning the right to become an officer in the U.S. Army is an honour and a privilege. There are few ways to achieve a commission and the deck is stacked against people older than twenty-five. However, if you are 18-40, have an undergraduate degree from an accredited college, have or can attain a minimum GT score of 110 and can pass an Army Physical Fitness Test, you can attend Officer Candidate School and earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Army.

The book offers 19 chapters of information to help potential candidates earn a commission in the Army. Everything you need to know is covered, from the application process to deciding what branch to choose after graduation. It even includes pre-made terrain model kits to assist you while attending OCS. Are you up to the challenge?
