The Army Signal Corps OCS
Association is a non-profit association. We conduct charitable
efforts to help fellow OCS grads and cadre in need, including their
families, children, grandchildren and other relatives. Our
primary effort centers around helping deserving children of
those who are members of our Association continue with their
college education. We do this through a scholarship program that
Funds for this and other charity efforts come from dues and membership fees, the profits from our PX,
as well as donations from you, the public. If you are a former OCS grad, please
consider donating to what is in reality your cause. You will be helping the very
same people you served with. We accept donations in any amount. Those needy who
receive your help will be eternally grateful to you for your kindness.
Notes From The Scholarship Committee Chairman
The deadline for scholarship applications for 2016 was July 31,
and has now closed. As of August 15, 2016, we were still processing the paperwork
associated with those that applied, as well as waiting on additional details,
records and forms to arrive. I want to wish all those who applied for a
scholarship the very best of luck. We will review the application packets and
notify those selected for a scholarship as soon as possible. Awardees will be
required to contact me with information concerning their school’s point of
contact to receive the scholarship check. Once I confirm that information, the
check will be mailed for depositing in the student’s school account. Once again,
we are able to provide this bit of financial assistance because of the
generosity of so many of our members. As I reported previously, though donations
are down slightly from previous years, the fund remains healthy enough to
sustain awards at the rate we have averaged over the past few years. All
donations of any amount are very welcome.
Thanks to all of you for your support. Once again, if you wish to donate to the
scholarship fund, send your donations to Richard Green, Secretary, at 190 SW
Wren Court, Lake City, FL 32025. You may add a donation to your membership dues
check or make it a separate check. Either way, please annotate on the check the
amount you are donating to the Scholarship Fund, as it is tax deductible. If you
wish to make a donation in the memory of or in honor of a friend or loved one,
please indicate such on your check and/or note to Richard. Remember, we accept
VISA, MasterCard, and American Express… and checks… and of course, even cash!
God Bless you all and God Bless America.
