Check out the Photo Gallery!

The photo collection continues to grow. We have more than 6000 photos contained in 143 albums! Included in these are 12 albums containing 306 class pictures from 1951 thru 1973. Check out the Photo Gallery for album links which include photos of training, past reunions and more. We encourage everyone to share OCS photos with us, so we can make them available for viewing on our website. Contact us at: admin@artilleryocsalumni.com

Note: we use Google Photos to store and organize the albums in our on-line photo collection. Albums in the OCS Reunion section (only) were part of Google +, which shut down in April. We have all the photo files, but are still in the process of re-organizing them, re-creating the albums and linking to them. They are not currently available for viewing. Thank you for your patience – they will be back soon.

Durham Hall (Building 3025) - The Artillery OCS Hall of Fame

The Fort Sill Artillery OCS Hall of Fame in Durham Hall (Building 3025) will eventually be closed to the general public. The Hall of Fame has been in this location since 1984. It has been operated and maintained by volunteers since 1999.

The transition to create a virtual on-line OCS Cultural Experience is under way. We are compiling an extensive collection of historic digital photos and OCS related documents for viewing on the Chapter website. The images will also be available at Fort Sill on a set of interactive kiosks for the general public. The kiosks will supplement OCS history story boards, display cases and memorabilia in an Artillery OCS Heritage Center we hope to build adjacent to the Field Artillery Museum.

Get the memories stirring:

Check out "The OCS Experience (Memories of Robinson Barracks and Artillery Officer Candidate School Fort Sill, Oklahoma 1941-1973)" available in PDF format on the
History Page.

We are compiling additional information for a future edition of "The OCS Experience" and encourage everyone to share stories and photos of their artillery OCS experiences. We are pleased to have received so many stories from graduates and will soon begin the editing process. If we have enough interest in the new product, we will offer a professionally printed 8.5 x 11 laminated soft cover book for sale. It will also be available on line in PDF format.
