Welcome to the Miami Recruiting Battalion
On behalf of the Battalion Commander, LTC Melgarejo, and the entire Miami Recruiting Battalion, I want to extend to you our warmest welcome to you and your family. Welcome to the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) and most importantly the Miami Knights Battalion.
Our battalion consists of 7 companies located through-out South Florida and Puerto Rico. The Company's headquarters is located in Doral, near downtown Miami.
Miami has a lot to offer: numerous zoos, museums, professional and collegiate sporting events, there's something for the entire family. I would be remised if I did not forewarn you that Miami is a very high-cost metropolitan. there are no military housing in the Miami area. Majority of the 4-bedroom homes rent for $1800 as much as $3100 a month. Requiring 1st month, last month and a deposit all equal to the rental amount.. When you arrive ensure you stop by the BN S1 first to start you BAH and COLA. It usually takes about 2 months before those changes go into effect, plan accordingly.
Please use the following address as your temporary mailing address once you depart from your current duty station: Miami Recruiting Battalion, 7715 NW 48 Street, Suite 200, Miami, FL 33166.
Direct any questions concerning your assignment to our Battalion s1 @ 305-403-8491. Again, welcome to the Miami Recruiting Battalion, if i can be any assistance , please do not hesitate in contacting me @ 305-479-8280.
Welcome to the team!
