FORT KNOX, Ky. - Soldiers from the U.S. Army's Recruiting and Retention School participated in the activation ceremony and assumption of command ceremony here Oct. 4 for its newly formed headquarters company.
The school relocated to Fort Knox in October 2014, aligning the school with the United States Army Recruiting Command Headquarters, which, until now, has provided company-level administrative support to Soldiers assigned to the schoolhouse.
"Today, Capt. Brandon Frazier and 1st Sgt. Hilda Garcia make history as the first company command team for the RRS," said Col. Isaac Johnson, the school's commandant.
The activation of the company provides the RRS a direct resource to support both personnel and operations.
"It makes it streamline a whole lot of different processes. It allows us to get their transactions done faster," said Frazier.
The activation of this unit will also better assist Soldiers by providing a command team that can focus directly on the needs of approximately 100 staff and cadre assigned to the RRS.
"Having a company command team here on ground, we get to fix problems right away," said Frazier.
According to Frazier, the command team is located inside the RRS building, making access to the command more convenient.
"We have our entity here so it makes it a little easier," said Garcia.
The RRS command team is also actively working to gain their accreditation to provide students the opportunity to earn college credit toward the courses they take at the school.
