    Noncommissioned Officer Candidate Locator

    ( Lovingly known as, " Shake n' Bake " )

    The mission of the N.C.O.C. Locator is to find and catalogue the current addresses of all former N.C.O.C. graduates and help them find their service buddies. If you are a former graduate and interested in finding friends from NCO School, or just want to register so others can find you, please write or E-mail us at the address listed below. [ We are a brother helping brother type group so the info is free for the asking ]

    In case you aren't sure of your Class number, we have the rosters from all the classes so we only need your full name and we can tell you what Class you were with.

    If you served with, or knew someone who was an NCOC graduate and you would like to contact them, we will act as a go between. Not everyone made friends in the service and we want to protect the privacy of our members. Many of the names listed here have an e-mail TAG so you can contact them directly from this site. If we have their address we will let them know you wish to make contact with them. If we don't have their current address, we will make a note in their Class file, informing them of your search.
