Durham Hall is closed to visitors effective September 11, 2018.

The Fort Sill Artillery OCS Hall of Fame in Durham Hall (Building 3025) will no longer be open for visitors. 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. In the meantime, we are working to create interactive kiosks to supplement the OCS History story boards, display cases and memorabilia that will be maintained in our future location at Fort Sill.

2019 Artillery OCS Alumni Reunion

The 2018 reunion held May 9-12 had a good turnout of graduates, cadre, family and friends. Thanks to all the graduates and people on Fort Sill who helped to make this another great event. We especially want to thank the 1-78th Field Artillery Battalion for their stellar support.

The 2019 reunion will likely be during the first or second week of May. The final dates will be dependent on the Fort Sill "Fires Conference." As soon as those dates are set, we will lock our dates in for the next reunion. Watch for updates posted here and on Facebook.

New additions to website

We have been busy scanning class pictures for the Class Pictures Gallery. If you don't see your class picture, contact us to see if we have it. We are missing most of the 1940s classes and a few in each of the other decades. A number of the pictures on display are not in good condition. If you have a picture that we are missing or a better copy of an existing one you could share with us, it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact us to determine the best way to get a copy to us.

Get the memories stirring:
