Quantico, Virginia


Dear OCS Families and Friends,


Unfortunately, effective immediately, the OCC-233 Social Dinner, all Family Day events, Graduation and Commissioning Ceremonies, and Graduation Day Brunch, are canceled to public attendance, in order to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19 to Marines or Marine Corps families. This prohibition on "public attendance" includes all military affiliated personnel, unless they are OCS staff members.


The good news is, we will LIVE stream the Graduation and Commissioning Ceremony on our YouTube channel <https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8bcxZZw-4wMZCBUvvkdskg> and our Facebook page <https://www.facebook.com/pg/usmcocs/> on 14 March from 10:00-11:30 AM Eastern Time.


This decision to cancel is in accordance with the Secretary of Defense direction that, effective immediately, public attendance at graduation ceremonies and related activities is prohibited, with no exceptions.


Additional notes:

-Candidates will NOT be released for liberty on Friday, 13 March (Family Day)

-On Saturday, 14 March, upon conclusion of the ceremonies, all candidates will be transported to The Basic School (TBS) to check-in. Once they are complete with check-in, TBS will release the lieutenants at their discretion.

-Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) is issuing refunds for the Social Dinner and Graduation Brunch. Please allow 72 hours for those refunds to process.


Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any further questions or concerns.
