Who We Are, What We Do:
Bringing quality young men and women into the Army - people who will complete their tours of duty and make a contribution to the Nation’s defense - is the objective of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command as it goes about the mission of providing the strength for America’s Army.

The U.S. Army Recruiting Command is responsible for manning both the Active Army and the U.S. Army Reserve, ensuring security and readiness for our Nation.  Recruiting operations are conducted throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and at U.S. facilities in Germany and Asia.

The USAREC headquarters, located at Fort Knox, Ky., provides the command, control and staff support to the recruiting force.  More than 400 officers, enlisted members and civilian employees work in diverse areas such as personnel, administration, resource management, safety, market research and analysis, public relations and recruiting operations.  The command has its own inspector general, staff judge advocate and headquarters command.

USAREC’s subordinate structure includes seven recruiting brigades.  The 1st Recruiting Brigade is headquartered at Fort Meade, Md.  The 2d Recruiting Brigade is at Redstone Arsenal, Ala.  The 3d Recruiting Brigade headquarters is located at Fort Knox.  The 5th Recruiting Brigade is at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.  The 6th Recruiting Brigade is located in North Las Vegas, Nev.  The Medical Recruiting Brigade headquarters, which also manages Special Forces and Chaplain recruiting, is collocated with the USAREC Headquarters at Fort Knox.

Each brigade commands up to eight recruiting battalions within its geographic area for a total of 44 battalions.  Each battalion commands the recruiting companies in its area.  Two hundred sixty-one companies provide the tactical control of recruiting stations.  The Medical Recruiting Brigade consists of five Medical Recruiting Battalions across the Command and the Special Operations Recruiting Battalion.

There are approximately 9,500 Soldier and civilian recruiters working out of more than 1,400 recruiting stations across America and overseas.  All have records of proven ability and potential, and each represents the finest traditions of the Army and military service.

Army recruiters must be knowledgeable in Army opportunities and the enlistment process before they are assigned to a recruiting station.  The Recruiting and Retention School, located at Fort Jackson, S.C., provides soldiers the institutional training necessary to become successful recruiters.  The recruiters’ skills continue to be developed in unit training programs that begin as soon as recruiters arrive in their recruiting areas.
