NIANTIC – Top candidates from around New England are training to be future leaders of the National Guard at Camp Niantic as part of Officer Candidate School.

On Thursday, physical training was on the top of the agenda, which included running laps, sprints, and push ups. After a quick change, what’s called the ‘lines of knowledge’ took place, during which officers in training were required to answer questions correctly and if they were wrong, they would do more pull ups and push ups.

After a quick lunch break, the officers partake in ‘warrior leader battle tasks,’ which allows the trainees to become comfortable teaching skills to one another.
