FORT KNOX, Ky. - The secretary of the Army visited U.S. Army Recruiting Command headquarters here July 13 to learn about recruiting missions, challenges and initiatives.

Eric Fanning, who was appointed the 22nd secretary of the Army by President Barack Obama May 18, toured the command's Virtual Recruiting Center, the Recruiting Operations Center and met with directors and staff of the command.

"It was a great opportunity to have him at the level of the people refining the leads," said Sgt. 1st Class David Grimm, the Virtual Recruiting Center's NCOIC. "To have the Army's top leader ask 'What do you do?' was excellent."

Fanning toured the areas and got a ground-level view of the work members of the command do each day to meet the Army's recruiting mission. For this year, the active-duty enlisted recruiting mission is 62,500 and 15,400 for the Army Reserve.

The secretary also visited Human Resources Command and U.S. Army Cadet Command while on Fort Knox.
