Officer candidates lower national colors at Fort Benning

Officer candidates move forward to lower the flag that flies above Fort Benning at the end of the duty day. The soldiers are enrolled at the Officer Candidate School. The school is an intensive 12-week course that trains soldiers into United States Army officers and future leaders of America. It is one of only three U.S. Army officer commissioning sources, alongside U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the Reserve Officers' Training Corps.
