Recruiting For Freedom First!
Soldiers and Families Always!!
TO THE SOLDIER: You will be joining a team of professionals dedicated to manning today's Army in the image of what the Army's leadership wants the Army to be. Whether you will be directly involved in the recruiting effort or performing duties in support of the recruiting force, you will be an important member of the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) family, and your job will require 110 percent of your energies. Likewise, you have the right to expect a living and working environment that meets the needs of you and your family.
The purpose of this web page is to provide you and your family with a brief introduction of the USAREC living and working environment, the associated hardships and challenges, and to make you aware of USAREC programs to enhance the "Quality of Life" for you and your family. Further information will be found in USAREC Pam 608-2 which will be provided to you. The Family Orientation Pamphlet (608-2) is part of an ongoing process to keep you and your family informed. It is important for you to know its contents and to keep your spouse informed throughout your tour. Once again, welcome aboard.
TO THE SPOUSE: Your spouse will be joining a team of professionals dedicated to recruiting the high quality men and women necessary to maintain a combat ready Army. Your spouse can be proud of joining the USAREC team and can look forward to a tour that is both challenging and rewarding.
Since many USAREC soldiers and families live and work in the civilian community, remote from any military installation, it is very important for all to be oriented regarding the civilian community and to be informed about Army, USAREC, organization, and community programs to help the Soldier and family. The Family Orientation Pamphlet (mentioned above) is the first step in an ongoing process to keep you informed.
Your spouse will be called upon to work long hours to accomplish the mission. The job will be demanding, and your spouse will need your understanding and support.
USAREC is committed to providing you and your spouse with a working and living environment which meets your personal needs and fosters a commitment to mission achievement. Get this pamphlet and read it! It may help you to better understand how this commitment to Quality of Life is pursued.
Welcome to the USAREC family!
