    Marine Corps officer candidates push through a water obstacle while supporting a log during the Montford Point Challenge at Marine Corps Officer Candidates School (OCS) aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, July 4, 2019. The Montford Point Challenge is ran to remember the heroic actions and sacrifices that were made African American Marines who, from 1942 to 1949, were segregated from white recruits and received basic training at Montford Point, a facility at Camp Lejeune, N.C. The mission of Officer Candidates School is to educate and train officer candidates in Marine Corps knowledge and skills within a controlled and challenging environment in order to evaluate and screen individuals for the leadership, moral, mental, and physical qualities required for commissioning as a Marine Corps officer.
