36 enter OCS Hall of Fame

Thirty-six graduates, including a Medal of Honor recipient, a Silver Star recipient and four World War II veterans, will be inducted into the Officer Candidate School Hall of Fame Friday at 3 p.m. at Fort Benning's Marshall Auditorium.

OCS graduate Col. Michael Coss, commander of the 192nd Infantry Brigade, will be the guest speaker.

Induction into the OCS Hall of Fame is the highest honor that OCS can bestow on a graduate. OCS graduates eligible for induction are those who have attained the rank of colonel, Medal of Honor recipients or those who have distinguished themselves in civilian occupations.

Inductees are chosen by a committee composed of the OCS battalion commander, the 11th Infantry Regiment commander, the Infantry School’s assistant commandant, the Infantry School’s chief of staff and the U.S. Army Infantry Center’s chief of staff.
