53rd Company Above the Rest
ABOVE THE REST
Welcome to the Infantry Officer’s Candidate School (OCS) 53rd Company class 7-68 web site. The class graduated on February 12, 1968 at Fort Benning, Georgia after completing six months of training that led to commissioning as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army. Less than a year later, most would be serving as rifle platoon leaders in Vietnam. Sadly, six of our comrades and our Company Commander were killed in action. This web site is a tribute to them and all the others who served. You can see their names and get more information about those who died in the “Cadre and Class Members” section of the site.
If you were a member of the class, please leave a response. Let us know what became of you after graduation. One of the objectives of this site is to serve as an objective rallying point for the 53rd. Company.
