I’m off to OCS!

While at OCC-202, I covet your prayers, encouraging mail, and prayers.  If you’re interested you can check out pictures as they are posted over the next 3 months of OCC here:


No need to send me anything–I have to do pushups to receive each letter sent.

    Can someone in the know tell me if this is true about the doing extra push-ups to be able to pick up letters? Should we discourage friends and family from writing to a candidate at OCS?

  2. Allan says:

    Send letters. Mail call is like Christmas morning. Not getting a letter is like not getting a present. As for pushups: Officially the answer is no, the candidates will not be required to do pushups in order to receive their mail. Unofficially: extra pushups never killed anyone.

    Thanks for the responses. I will send all the cards I’ve been collecting. Estela, not to worry–we don’t even have the correct address (with company and platoon) yet. I am just sending them to the main address and hoping they get to him!

    Please send mail. OCS is unlike Recruit Training; Officer Candidates are not physically punished outside of weapons safety violations. They will conduct mail call during evening BDR. Send Mail!

    Thanks for creating this blog . Thanks to this I could get in touch with your mom that is an amasing person and I already love her even if I dont know her in person , she helped me to send letters to my husband who is in Delta 1st plt because Im in Mexico.
    Good Luck to you and to everyone and God bless you !

    OOps, Estella–I don’t know how you got the impression that the writer of the blog is my son. He’s not, though both are at OCS and are, I am sure, wonderful young men!
    Best wishes,
