Navy Officer Candidate School — Arrival(01:23)
Officer candidates arrive at the Navy Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Naval Station Newport in Newport, R.I., to begin their training and education. During indoctrination, the first few days of the 12-week program, candidates are fitted for their uniforms, given a medical and dental screening, given a haircut and shown their living quarters. Senior officer candidates who are near the completion of the program guide the new class of recruits throughout this process.
