Welcome to the U.S. Army’s 1st Recruiting Brigade.
“The VICTORY BRIGADE!”
Soldiers, Families and Civilians – welcome to the 1st Recruiting Brigade.
Our mission in the Brigade is to recruit – with integrity – highly qualified men and women to meet Army mission requirements, while developing and caring for all members of the command. The Victory Brigade is an adaptive organization exemplifying Army Values, excellence in recruiting operations while simultaneously providing for the wellness of its Soldiers, Civilians, and Families.
Everyone in the Brigade has a responsibility to ensure this mission is shared and articulated to their force. I ask that your respective battle rhythms and training efforts support the focus priorities and the areas of emphasis.
Recruiting is a rewarding and, at times, demanding mission. We must ensure our recruiting operations are conducted with precision and discipline. Our Soldiers are often the only connection many communities have to the Army. We are the face, voice, and spirit of our Army to the American public. Become a member of the community and treat everyone with the utmost dignity and respect.
Leaders, develop your Soldiers by teaching, coaching and mentoring. Leverage technology to reach out to your audiences and share best practices with each other. I ask that your respective battle rhythms and training efforts support the Brigade priorities and areas of emphasis.
Remember, wherever you are stationed, no Soldier is ever alone. In the Brigade, there is always a shoulder to lean on, and someone will always be looking after you.
I, Command Sergeant Major Craig, and your new team of fellow professionals welcome you to the VICTORY BRIGADE and we wish you much success in your new assignment.
Army Strong – Victory!
Col. Ricky N. Emerson
Commander, 1st Recruiting Brigade
