More than 50 recruiting centers close annual missions

Fifty-one centers across U.S. Army Recruiting Command already have closed out their annual missions - with four months to spare in the fiscal year.

Completing an annual mission halfway through the year is an extraordinary accomplishment, said USAREC's senior enlisted leader, Command Sgt. Maj. Anthony Stoneburg.

"It is a true reflection of the quality of leadership and the hard work of all the NCOs assigned," he said.

While their accomplishments are a huge success, Stoneburg reiterated the importance of every center - whether they made mission early or not - continuing to support the command's overall Regular Army and Army Reserve missions.

"We are a team," he said, "and I would ask them all to continue to work to their maximum potential and continue to lead from the front."

One of the centers leading the way, based in Flushing, New York, closed out its annual mission halfway through the year for the second time in a row. By April 20, the center's eight recruiters were up by two Regular Army enlistments and had enlisted an additional 24 Army Reserve Soldiers.

"I am thankful for each of the Soldier's hard work," said Center Leader Staff Sgt. Matthew Johnson. "Each recruiter is happy to have achieved our annual mission before anyone in 1st Brigade, yet again, setting the bar for others to follow."

Each recruiter manages more than 20 applicants a day, so Johnson said making mission early wasn't easy. The Flushing center will continue prospecting and enlisting applicants as usual until the end of the fiscal year, the center leader added.

"Our goal at this point is to enjoy our day while maintaining the forward momentum and continuing to be a main effort recruiting center," Johnson said.

Johnson said another goal for the Flushing team is to get each noncommissioned officer into air assault, airborne and NCOES schools.

"These achievements inspire me," Stoneburg said of all centers that have closed their mission. "We are very appreciative of their efforts and appreciate what they do for us every day."
