When I say "OCS" was looking for some of my fellow graduates from Ft. Belvoir Officer Candidate School. Pardon my ignorance, but what does "OCS" really stand for?

Warning a woman was killed in this video of the Norfolk Southern Executive Train hitting a car that was on the tracks in Appomattox, Virginia May 1, 2019.
Unofficially, it was known as "The Kentucky Derby Special". In the days before the
N&W/SOU merger, both roads operated a "Kentucky Derby Special". On board
were company officers and the Bored of Directors touring the railroad. One year,
the N&W "Special" went to Sandusky, and the highlight of the trip was an ALCO RS-3
assigned to yard service. It was painted in the Pevler scheme and the yellow circle
with"N&W" had faded. Some artist had drawn a "happy face" on it That was enough to
cause R.F. Dunlap (V.P. - Operations) to giggle. Harry Bundy
