The United States Army Recruiting Battalion Denver is one of the largest of the 41 battalions within the U.S. Army Recruiting Command. Encompassing an area of more than 259,135 square miles, its territory includes all of Colorado and Nebraska and parts of Wyoming, Kansas and Iowa. In the chain of command, the battalion is immediately subordinate to the 5th Army Recruiting Brigade, headquartered at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
Subordinate to the battalion area are seven recruiting companies and one detachment, apportioned primarily by population. Company headquarters are located in Aurora, Wheat Ridge, and Colorado Springs, Colo., Cheyenne, Wyo., Omaha and Lincoln, Neb., Wichita, Kan., and a Detachment headquarters in Grand Junction, Colo. At the "front lines" and of the greatest importance, are the 50 recruiting stations spread from Durango, Colo., to Omaha, Neb., to Wichita, Kan.
When recruiters, commanders and staff talk about "making mission," they are talking about our primary reason for being, which is to recruit the highest quality individuals to meet the requirements of the United States Army and Army Reserve.
The latest population estimates show that more than 7 million people reside in our area. The challenge is finding and recruiting from among the 733,535 persons who are considered eligible for military service.
The battalion headquarters is located at 225 16th Ave., Suite 400, Denver, Colo. The Denver Recruiting Battalion is the home of outstanding recruiters continually seeking quality people to join them in service to their country through the United States Army.
