Service Dates 3-17-1941 to 9-30-1966

The United States Navy's Officer Candidate School, currently located at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, provides training to become a commissioned officer. Attendance is one possible way for civilian college graduates (bachelor's degree or higher) with no military experience to earn a commission as a U.S. Navy officer. Additionally, the Navy also enrolls a significant number of candidates with current or prior enlisted experience in the military. In this way, OCS serves as a path to commissioned status for high-performing enlisted personnel. Alternatives include the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps, Officer Development School (ODS), and graduation from the United States Naval Academy.--wikipedia

The Navy previously operated two officer candidate programs, OCS at Newport, Rhode Island and Aviation Officer Candidate School (AOCS) at NAS Pensacola, Florida. AOCS trained prospective Naval Aviators, Naval Flight Officers, Aviation Maintenance Duty Officers, and Air Intelligence Officers, while OCS trained all other Officer communities. The original US Navy OCS in Newport, Rhode Island began operation in 1951 and was closed down in April 1994 when the programs were merged as a single OCS at NAS Pensacola. Subsequently, in 2007 the consolidated Navy OCS curriculum was relocated back to Newport by direction of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission of 2005. A difference in class numbering between OCS and AOCS was that AOCS classes were numbered by graduation date in the calendar year vice fiscal (for example, the first glass to graduate in January would be Class 01-YY as opposed to the first class in the fiscal year (October)).
In AOCS, all basic military training was administered by enlisted drill instructors from the United States Marine Corps. This facet of the training (origin of the slogan "Navy owned, Marine Corps trained") at AOCS in Pensacola was considered a point of pride and mark of distinction by graduates of AOCS that separated themselves from the graduates of OCS in Newport. When the single OCS was established in Pensacola, the program retained both the Marine DIs of AOCS and the US Navy CPOs of Newport. Newport OCS now has both.--wikipedia

Highlight of his Naval career: Launching the first guided missiles from the USS Boxer into North Korea (1952). They used obsolete fighter aircraft and attached 2,000 lb. bomb on the belly and catapulted the pilotless aircraft to the targets with the control mother plane following. ----as told to me by Lester Russell

Subject: Inquiry on Lester Bruce Russell
Patty,
I came across your name when looking up a headstone in the Fort Snelling National Cemetery. We recently moved into a house in Savage, MN and found a headstone in our backyard with the name LESTER BRUCE RUSSELL on it. It appears to have been in our backyard for quite a few years, but I wanted to verify with someone that it was not stolen from anywhere. I was planning on calling the city of Savage, however, after coming across your name on the associated Fort Snelling site, I was hoping you could provide me any information as to whether or not someone wants this before we get rid of it. If you would like, I can send you a picture of where we found it in our backyard.
Thank you,


Patty,
Sorry for the delay on this. Yes, Fort Snelling was able to come over and pick them up. They were unsure how they got there, but said if they ever find out that they will let me know. If I hear anything back from them, I'll be sure to let you know.
Thank you,
