Abstract:

The Reserve Officers Training Corps ROTC, the United States Military Academy USMA and the Officer Candidate School OCS are pivotal to the maintenance of the Armys officer corps. These sources are increasingly being challenged by resource constraints, availability of qualified applicants, and rapid change in the Army. The research presented in this paper examines the Armys educational officer pre-commissioning sources and their adequacy to meet the needs of the Army in the future.
