        Welcome to the Chicago Recruiting Battalion

        Welcome to the Chicago Recruiting Battalion! The Chicago Battalion covers a large geographic area in both Illinois and northern Indiana. Outside of Army Reserve facilities, the Great Lakes Naval Station in North Chicago is the only major military installations in the Battalion area. In most cases, it will be in your best interest to live within the recruiting area to which you are being assigned. Taking into consideration the flexibility of the working hours required by recruiters and the heavy traffic patterns associated with living and working in a major metropolitan area, it’s best to live near your assigned recruiting office. A shorter commute will allow you more quality time with your family. For information regarding the Government Leased Housing Program, contact the Facilities Manager at (224) 538-3525 or by e-mailing

        You will be assigned a sponsor and will receive a welcome packet from the Battalion. This packet will provide you additional information on your assignment and the area to which you are being assigned. For further information, contact the Battalion S-1 at (224) 538-3545 or you can e-mail by clicking here.

        If you don't hear from your sponsor or would like more information, please contact the Battalion S-1 at

        Again, welcome to the Chicago Recruiting Battalion. Army Strong!

        Lt. Col. Kevin J. Groppel -   CSM Corey J. Fairchild
