The Georgia State Defense Force recently held a ceremony to recognize and congratulate the new class of Officers that recently graduated from the Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC). The Officers can now remove their training O.C.S. ranks and replace them with their Commissioned Ranks they were assigned by the Georgia State Defense Force & Governor of Georgia. The new  Officers will now return to their home units and stand ready to serve their State and Country.

Here are photos and videos from the graduation ceremony:
