Congressman Steve Womack will be inducted into the Officer Candidate School (OCS) Hall of Fame this weekend at Camp Robinson in Little Rock.

 

Womack commanded the 233rd Regional Training Institute of the Arkansas Army National Guard from 2005-2009.  During his command, Womack commissioned dozens of lieutenants in the Army National Guard and saw his organization receive the highest honor possible for a training regiment—Schoolhouse of Excellence. Womack retired from the Guard in 2009 after 30 years of service, at the rank of Colonel.

 

Officer Candidate School Hall of Fame Induction
233rd RTI General Instruction Building, Camp Robinson, Little Rock, AR 17303
Saturday, September 10th
Ceremony begins at 11:00 a.m.

 

Womack released the following statement on his induction:

 

    “Induction into the OCS Hall of Fame is a great honor for me because I’m one of the few inductees who was not commissioned through the program.  Few officers enter the Hall of Fame under the “honorary” category, so this particular honor is one of the finest compliments that can be made to a Guardsman.

    “I consider the recruitment and training of the future officer leadership of the Guard one of our nation's highest priorities, and the Arkansas Army National Guard's OCS program was and remains one of the best in America.  Those lieutenants we commissioned were ready upon graduation for the rigors of leadership today's officers experience.  To be honored in this way (HOF) is a source of pride to me, personally, for the work our team did in producing quality lieutenants!"
