JCOC 87 is scheduled for August 6-12, 2017.

The JCOC Program offers unprecedented engagement with senior DoD officials, Service members and military training exercises.  Participants are guests of the Secretary of Defense and embark on their week-long JCOC journey following discussions with senior officials at the Pentagon. 

Prior JCOC experiences have included participating in military exercises with Special Operations Forces, aircraft simulation training, and launch boat demonstrations.

"It's one thing to write great stories about our men and women in uniform, it's quite another to meet and be with them up close.  What they do, who they are, why they do what they do. They're amazing."

Adam Foshko, Director, Story Development
