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 disperse 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 Seattle Recruiting Battalion serves the nation and an Army at war by recruiting the best-qualified men and women from Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. At all times, in all activities, the Battalion conducts itself in accordance with Army values and provides a professional environment with a genuine high quality of life to all assigned personnel.

Every soldier assigned to the Seattle Recruiting Battalion will have a sponsor assigned to them to help facilitate in processing and ensure a smooth integration into their respective company and station. Once the battalion command sergeant major has determined the initial assignment location the soldier should call their company first sergeant to introduce themselves and receive the name and phone number of their sponsor.
Lending ClosetIn an effort to ensure every arriving and/or departing soldier and family have adequate daily living items available until their household goods arrive, each company headquarters has a Lending Closet kit available for sign out. Additionally, the battalion headquarters has a kit on hand at all times for personnel assigned as support staff. Loan Closet kits can be checked out for an initial 30-day period and may be extended if necessary. Please contact the company leadership team for issuance or turn-in. For the battalion headquarter’s staff, contact the Soldier and Family Assistance program manager for issuance or turn-in.
The health care system that each recruiter and family will utilize when they are in the Seattle Battalion varies greatly depending on the location and surrounding facilities.
