    FORT BRAGG, N.C. - The North Carolina National Guard welcomed twenty-three new second lieutenants into its ranks during a graduation ceremony for the 139th Regiment’s Officer Candidate School, Class 59 (pictured) at the John F. Kennedy Special Forces Warfare Center and School on Aug. 19, 2017. Aside from the critical MOS and professional development training being conducted at the 139th RTI every week, there is the highly respected and demanding North Carolina Army National Guard Officer Candidate School. 139th RTI’s Officer Candidate School (OCS) is 14-months long with three arduous phases. OCS typically enrolls 15-25 officer candidates in each class. “I have my own business and the experience from OCS carries over into my civilian career.” said 2nd Lt. Austin Tate, 139th RTO OCS Class 59’s Academic Graduate Award winner. “I’m getting ready to hire people and I’ll have people that I’ll be in charge of and the overwhelming experience I received here will be a big contributor to that.” North Carolina National Guard’s Officer Candidate School was established at Fort Bragg on December 19, 1957, and has commissioned over 1780 officers.
