Frank Remembers . . . OCS was many things to each student, and frequently many things at the same time. Frustrating, exciting, tiring, challenging, demanding, etc., etc,. . . . . . There were never enough hours in the day (and the night) to get done those things that had to be done. My memorable events were those occasional times when those of us who were married could meet our wives (legally or otherwise). Those “ goody bag ” runs which provided us (and our single classmates) with those items we just couldn ’ t do without. Especially memorable for me was being the first member of Class 61D to have a weekend pass for Billy Mitchell Village. It was only for a brief time, but was it ever welcome!!!!!
