Our Battalion consists of the Battalion Headquarters, five Companies, 19 Recruiting Centers . We cover several hundred square miles of California stretching south from the L.A./Orange County border to as far north as Santa Clarita.
Los Angeles is one of the most unique cities in the world with its diverse cultures and many activities to offer. Movie premiers, a trendy upscale nightlife, beautiful beaches and a variety of sports activities are just highlights that Los Angeles offers. Within a few miles of our Battalion is the Staples Center, home of the Los Angeles Lakers, Disneyland, Universal Studios, Malibu, Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach.
