Know Your Corps🇺🇸



From the shores of Tripoli, to Belleau Wood, the Frozen Chosin, and the streets of Fallujah, Marines have been winning our nation’s battles in times of crisis. Yesterday at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Officer Candidates of Fairfax were sent on a scavenger hunt to learn more about our beloved Corps. Knowing and observing this history, both written and unwritten, is important to each Marine because it keeps them mindful of the heritage and traditions of their Corps, and of their duty to uphold them. Semper Fidelis!

“Walking the Dog”



Last night in our class on terrain models, Candidate Soltero demonstrates the “walk the dog” method while briefing his peers. Terrain models provide avisual representation for all members of the mission. In this exercise, the candidates were read a frag order then were instructed to create a terrain model to depict what they were briefed. With limited time and resources, they had to be creative and think fast in order to make an accurate visual representation. Good job Fairfax! @ Marine Corps Officer Selection Station Fairfax

Recovery Friday💪🏼



Want better recovery? Better mobility? Better blood flow? Foam rolling is an easy and effective technique that when done properly can yield great benefits. Foam rolling is a method of Myofascial Release (MFR) that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in your muscles. Fascia is thin connective tissue that wraps around most structure in the body, especially skeletal muscle tissue. Irregular fascia surrounding your muscles could be a factor that is adding to your soreness, recovery time, and immobility. To release this fascia, apply pressure on the areas that are tender. Make slow and small movements to that area until the sensation dissipates. Repeat these step as many times as needed. Try foam rolling after your next session! Get some! @ Marine Corps Officer Selection Station Fairfax

Mini OCS 2019:



Great job to the candidates and applicants who partook in Mini OCS this past weekend. After an early departure on Friday morning, the Fairfax Officer Selection Office arrived at Stone Bay. Mini OCS is designed to simulate the training that a candidate will experience over the LOI at Officer Candidates School. This function has been proven to ensure that candidates have the mental, physical, and field skills necessary to complete Marine Corps OCS. Over the course of 48 hours, the candidates partook in the following events that they will be screened and evaluated on: Close order drill, LRC, the endurance course, and physical training. They were instructed by a professionally trained staff of sergeant instructors, officers, and non-commissioned officers. After a long and hard weekend, all candidates are now more familiar and confident of the rigors of OCS. The training doesn’t stop here! Semper Fidelis and get to work!

OCS Challenge:



Great job to the candidates and applicants who partook in today’s poole function. The event placed an emphasis on sharpening their teamwork and communication skills. Upon arrival to Burke Lake Park, the candidates were briefed rules and an overview of what was to come. The team had to carry a pull-up bar, loaded packs, and several ammo cans for miles in the swamped trails. Throughout the trails, the team would stop for calisthenics, and leadership stations. Unselfishness and dependability were two leadership principles that were honed today. At OCS it is salient that you are a team player. Marines go out of their way to help others and also know that their peers are relying on them. Keep up the great work Fairfax! Get some!

First To Fight:



Since 1775 Marines have defended the people of the United States at home and abroad. Marines are committed to facing any threat, at any moment, anywhere in the world.

MOS Feature: 4402 Judge Advocate



Marine Corps Judge Advocates, or JAs, are licensed attorneys who are also commissioned officers in the Marine Corps. Each JA goes through the same initial training as any other Marine officer.

A Marine officer with a law degree attends Naval Justice School where he or she is instructed in the fundamental principles of military justice, civil and administrative law, and legal assistance, with practical application of those principles, in order to assist in the attainment of good order and discipline and a high standard of legal practice and administration. Upon graduation from the school, the Marine is designated as a Judge Advocate and will begin their tour in the Fleet Marine Force as an attorney.

Great job to all of the candidates and applicants who partook in yesterday’s FEX. Upon arrival to Quantico, they conducted a 9 mile hike, and had the chance to lead their peers in a SULE (Small Unit Leadership Evaluation). Functions like this make the candidates more technically and tactically proficient, and will sharpen their skills required to excel at OCS. Oorah!
