Portland Recruiting Battalion Welcome Packet
Welcome! You are about to become part of the Warrior Battalion - one of the finest recruiting organizations in the world. To ease your transition, there are many useful links on the Family Support page. Please feel free to contact your sponsor or incoming unit if you have not yet been contacted. Sponsorship is an important part of any move so if you do not have a satisfactory sponsorship experience, please inform your chain of command or the Soldier and Family Assistance representative.
Here are two typical questions we are often asked:
Q: Where will my dependents go for medical/dental/emergency support?
A: As a recruiter, you will use TRICARE Prime Remote because you will probably not be located near a military installation. Each battalion has a Health Care Advisor that will brief you upon arrival and show you how your family's medical needs will be met.
Q: Where will I live while I am a Recruiter?
A: Housing is your decision. You can rent, buy, or if you are located near a military installation, apply for quarters. Your sponsor can send you housing information well in advance so you can get a preview of cost and location. It is recommended that you live near your assigned recruiting station.
