ur Community Salutes (OCS) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. It was created in 2009 by Dr. Kenneth E. Hartman to recognize and honor high school seniors (and their parents/guardians) who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation.
With what started as one OCS ceremony in southern New Jersey in 2009 has now spread across the nation. These events are all planned and conducted by volunteers, including military veterans, high school and college educators, local businesses, community leaders, and active duty military personnel.
