STAR! H595 After reporting, the first stop for the ROCS was the infirmary. A check of each man's health record was often followed by the order: "Roll up your sleeve, Mister!" Next step for many of the ROCS was the cloth- ing dispensary. Here the ROC received a full sup- ply of the khaki uniforms which would soon become all-too-familiar to him. Bedding quickly followed clothing in the ROC's fast growing list of Navy gear. He received the sheets which would soon be stretched taut across his bed with sharp hospital corners, and the blan- kets which would soon be neatly folded and placed exactly one hand's width from the foot of the bed. The last.stop was for books. For the ROC Ones lsecond year menl there was reunion, although not altogether a pleasant one, with the blue covered Dutton's Navigation and the unwieldy Gunnery book. Although last, perhaps this was the most important stop made during those July days. And so on Monday morning the ROCS in their uniforms with their books under their arms, marched to their first classes. ROC school was beginning. In six weeks the events pictured on these pages were to be reversed. Back went the books, the clothes, the bedding, and back went the ROCS to the many parts of the country from which they came. From any standpoint they were a memor- able six weeks, especially to the men who lived them. This book is the story of those six weeks.

ROCS ARRIVE By the hundreds the ROCS came on those hot July mornings, through the gates of the Long Beach Naval Station. They came from as close as Los Angeles and as for as New York. There were men from as many colleges as one could name, from such large schools as Columbia, Duke, North Caro- lina, Notre Dame, and U.-C.L.A., and from the smaller ones such as Washington and Lee, Swath- more, and Hofstra College. They came from many places and a multiplicity of backgrounds, yet they came with but an single purpose. The ROCS were all Naval Reservists who had given up a summer vacation to work-and hard work it was, too-in order that they might receive an Ensign's commission in the U. S. Naval Reserve. . Each of the twenty two hundred of them had been hand picked by the Navy from over twelve thousand applicants. They had been selected on the basis of scholastic and physical fitness. Among the ROCS were to be found presidents of student bodies, editors of collegiate presses, All-Americans, and in short outstanding person- alities from every phase of collegiate life. ROC school was indeed, a school of leaders.
