----- 2009 ----- Summertime And It's Anything But Easy
The summer break has long been a treasured tradition for college students, maybe a chance to work a part-time job, try out an internship, or maybe just kick back and enjoy summer while they can.
But for the ambitious few who aspire to be Marine Officers it's getting up before dawn, extreme physical training and an intense academic curriculum. It's all part of attending Officer Candidates School, and it is highlighted in a new Marine Corps commercial, A Few Will Lead.
OCS is renowned for its ability to instill leadership skills into students who are up to the challenge - skills necessary to lead Marines, skills that stay with you throughout your life. And by all means, share it with your friends.
The commercial was shot over three weeks during the summer at OCS in Quantico, VA. It is part of an ongoing effort to introduce the nation's best college students to the unique leadership opportunities in the Marine Corps.
All of the footage in the spot is real. It shows officer candidates tackling the Confidence Course, Marine Corps Martial Arts Training, the Physical Fitness Test and Drill Performance. At the end of it all, most will go back to college with a new perspective on the demands of their classes.
