The U.S. Army Recruiting Command and its Soldiers, Families, Civilians and Contractors are the Army’s trusted ambassadors to the American people. We “Provide the Strength” from the 1,400-plus recruiting stations nationwide and overseas.
Recruiting is one of the most critical jobs in the Army and it’s an extremely important mission. USAREC is a geographically dispersed unit, located throughout the 48 continental states, Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Europe, Guam, Saipan, Japan and Korea.
Due to the geographical dispersal of the units within USAREC, Soldiers and Families may find themselves living many miles from a military installation. For some, transitioning into a civilian community can be difficult.
USAREC stands proud knowing we have Soldiers and Families like you who are up for a challenge. Ensuring the quality of life for our Soldiers, Families, Civilians and Contractors is as important as the annual mission. Taking care of each other only makes us stronger. As a team – with Soldiers, Families, Civilians and Contractors hand in hand – we will strive daily to achieve success. We pledge to give you all we have to ensure your time in USAREC is nothing short of rewarding.
The San Antonio Recruiting Battalion's mission is to recruit qualified men and women from south and central Texas, in order to provide the strength needed to uphold and defend Freedom and Democracy.
The Battalion has historically been among the top achievers in the U.S. Army Recruiting Command. Active Army enlistments total more than 3,000 annually, while Army Reserve enlistments are about 900. The goal, however, is more than numbers. The focus is on recruiting quality youth to provide the strength for today's Army. The slogan is "Lean Forward, Seize the Opportunity.” The Battalion has recently acquired El Paso Company which doubled our area of operation and we cover 135,000 square miles.
You will be given your Battalion assignment during the second week of Recruiter School. Shortly thereafter, you will receive an email sent to your AKO account from the S-1. This email will include the name and contact information for your Sponsor, who will contact you within 7 days.
As your quality of life will be influenced greatly by your commute, you'll want to utilize the relocation tools to ensure you're within a reasonable commuting distance of your Recruiting Center. Don't make housing arrangements until you get here, however you may start an application with the government lease housing program. Visit http://www.usarec.army.mil/fhp/. You will be pleased with the reasonable cost of living in the San Antonio Recruiting Battalion area.
