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.
US Army CenCal Battalion is part of the US Army 6th Recruiting Brigade. We are located throughout the California's San Joaquin Valley, San Francisco area and Monterey and Gold Coasts. Check out our website or visit us at Facebook.
Our Mission Statement:
Central California Recruiting Battalion conducts recruiting operations with integrity and high standards to meet the needs of the United States Army while taking care of Soldiers, Civilians and their families.
Our Vision Statement:
Team Central California is the best battalion led by competent and caring officers, NCO's and civilians; provides and creates opportunities for our nation's young adults to serve in an honorable and values based profession; pillars in our communities, school and civic organizations.
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. Your Sponsor and Soldier and Family Assistance (SFA) Program Manager can assist you and provide local area resources as you settle into your new home.
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.
All In-Processing requirements of the Recruiter and Family Members will be processed by the S-1. The S-1 office can be reached at 559-817-3157. You may also call 559-817-3146 or 3147.
