FORT KNOX, Ky.—Marine Corps Reserve Capt. Scott T. Jones has graduated from the Army Basic Officer Leader Course III, designed to ensure a tough, standardized, small-unit leadership experience for officers.
The course develops and produces competent, confident and adaptable officers with increased maturity equipped to share a common bond with their combined arms peers.
