New archways dedicated at Ft. Benning

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - The Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning held a ceremony Monday morning to dedicate the newly constructed arches.

The archways represent a doorway in which candidates cross and enter their futures as leaders in the Army.

"These young men and women that go through O.C.S. are very special to us and we look for the opportunity to serve those that are serving us those men and women such a special day," said John Bird with the USAA in San Antonio, Texas.

The arches are a continuation of a longstanding tradition, and the original archway dedication was held 50 years ago.
