Welcome to the Albany Recruiting Battalion
Congratulations on your selection to serve as a member of the United States Army Recruiting Command, Albany Battalion. I am the battalion commander, LTC Janice M. Gravely and I am honored to welcome you to our Army family. An assignment to Albany Recruiting Battalion will be exciting and challenging. You will have the unique opportunity of “Providing the Strength” for your teammates in operational units as well as ensuring that we only provide high caliber, quality Soldiers to fill our ranks.
In addition, we would like to welcome your family as critical members of our team. We have active Family Readiness Groups or representatives in each company. They are ready to provide any assistance you will need to make this transition from a military to a predominately civilian community smooth.
The Albany Recruiting Battalion was established in 1972. Our battalion consists of six companies and one detachment. Our area of operations includes the 27 northeastern counties of New York, the five westernmost counties of Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and Europe. While you are stationed here, I encourage you to take time to visit some of the historic and scenic sites in this part of the country.
You were hand picked to support this critical mission. Your past performance is indicative of your professionalism, dedication, and commitment to give your best to this sacred task.
CSM Lynch and I look forward to personally meeting you and your family as you become a part of our Army family.
JANICE M. GRAVELY
