PLC-Seniors? I thought you were OCC…

September 27th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m thinking some people might be confused when they read that I’m trying to go back to PLC-Seniors, as opposed to Officer Candidates Class, from which I was originally NPQ’d from, so I’m going to explain.

OCC (10-weeks of training) is for college graduates who wish to become Officers in the Marines. PLC, or Platoon Leaders Class is for those still in college, who want to become Officers when they graduate. In order for students to have enough time to complete the required training and screening, PLC is broken into two 6-week sessions, PLC-Juniors and PLC-Seniors. If one completes both parts during two summer vacations from college, upon graduation they will become 2nd Lieutenants.

Since I was doing well and had completed a significant amount of training before I was injured, I was invited back to PLC-Seniors, a 6-week course, instead of having to go through the entire 10-weeks again. I actually heard this second-hand, because I was in a hospital bed at Bethesda Naval Hospital at the time. When my father went to get my gear from OCS, the Colonel met him and asked my father to pass on the word.

The PLC-Seniors class I am shooting for is exactly 8 months away.

    Oooh! OCC 195-ish? I’ll be there, I hope. For the 10 week class, that is. But I’ll be there the same time as the seniors.
