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.
Accomplish every assigned mission with a powerful recruiting TEAM which dominates all markets while encompassing the Warrior Spirit. (Warrior Spirit = caring for people, Army values, clear vision & purpose.) Cover our assigned Area of Operations with the Army Story, professional advantages, belief in self, and personal courage.
All Battalion Recruiting Stations are located in High Cost Areas. Use of the Family Leased Housing Program is highly recommended. There are no installations within the Area of Operations of the Continental portion of the Battalion. Fort Lewis, Washington is the nearest Installation of any Service. It is 130 miles away from the nearest Recruiting Station. Those stationed on the island of Oahu, Hawaii may take advantage of several large installations as may those stationed in Guam. All other islands are without Military installation support of any kind. All Recruiters are required to enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote. Family members may elect TRICARE Prime, Extra or Standard. The Remote option allows medical bills to be handled as Prime even when not in a normal Prime service area. Dental insurance is handled through the Tricare Dental Program administered by and their network of preferred providers. Childcare is not typically available except through civilian sources.
