    OCS - Officer Candidate School
    DCO - Direct Commission Officer
    LDC - Leadership Development Center
    CSPI - College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative (USCG)
    DOD - Department of Deferense
    BGO - Blue and Gold Officer (USNA)
    NAPS - Naval Academy Prep School


    Now even worse Officer, you will run into the fact that abbreviations do not always the same. Went to a joint meeting.....figured out not too far into it, CG didn't mean Coast Guard, it meant Commanding General
