The second largest branch in the U.S. Army, the ordnance Corps, is in charge of a wide range of weapons systems. More specifically, officers in this branch ensure that weapon systems, vehicles, and equipment are ready and available, as well as in perfect working order, for combat commanders anytime, anywhere.
At the ordnance Basic Officer Leaders Course, you will learn leadership skills, tactics, maintenance, and operational aspects of weapons and vehicles used in an Ordnance platoon. Your training will take place in classrooms and in the field.
There are three main divisions in the ordnance Corps: material maintenance management, munitions material management, and explosive ordnance disposal. As an officer in this branch, you may manage vast amounts of supplies and soldiers or serve in a staff position.
