    I assume there are some mustangs and the rest are civillians with college degrees that did not do OCS?

    ROTC doesn't go through OCS right?

  5. ROTC goes to BOLC II and III. (Basic Officer Leader Course).

    Enlisted go to OCS. College grads go to OCS if they didn't do ROTC.

    Never heard that shit before.


    After googling it, it looks to be primarily Navy/Air Force slang.

    Mustang is a Navy/Marine Corps term for prior Enlisted who become Officers.

    First heard the term used in wonderful Rolling Stone Article on the first US Casualty in the Iraq Invasion on the Marine Lieutenant that was killed on the assault on an oil refinery in southern Iraq.
