Welcome to the Houston Recruiting Battalion
On behalf of all officers, non-commissioned officers, civilians, and family members of the Houston Recruiting Battalion we would like to welcome you to South East Texas. Over the next weeks and months we hope to make the transition for you and your family as seamless as possible. The Houston Battalion covers an area of 39,423 square miles of urban and rural communities with a population of nearly 9 million. Our companies are located in the Beaumont, South Houston, North Houston, West Houston, Conroe, Tyler and Baybrook areas.
During your assignment to this Battalion you will use all your previous skills and life experiences to coach, teach and mentor young men and women who are willing to serve in defense of our great Country. You should be proud of your history and your Army Story which has helped you become the leader you are today. I will ask you to share your story and Army Story with the families and communities throughout South East Texas. I would also ask you to bring fresh ideas and teamwork to this Battalion as our success depends upon our ability to react to an ever changing environment.
Your move to Southeast Texas will be unique in that there is no Army installation in our area of operation. However, our team is here to guide you through every step of your move so that it is smooth and positive. We encourage you to call the battalion before you begin your travels so that we can provide you with the most current information regarding your assignment. We will expedite your inprocessing at the battalion and highly encourage you to bring your spouse along for your initial orientation. If you have questions at any time during your travels or even after you arrive in the Battalion, please do not hesitate to contact our Personnel Section, (713) 588-4007/4008 or our Soldier Family Assistance Program Manager, (713) 588-4034.
We are absolutely glad that you will be joining our team in Texas and we are definitely looking forward to meeting you soon. Your tour of duty with the Houston Recruiting Battalion is guaranteed to be exciting, challenging, and personally rewarding. Once again, welcome to the battalion. Hooah!
