The 6th Medical Recruiting Battalion was activated on 2 October 1995 at Fort Baker, California under Permanent Orders 5173-2, as the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) Recruiting Detachment (Provisional). The unit was activated as a result of the expansion of United States Army Recruiting Command's (USAREC) mission to include the recruitment of health care professionals for the Army Medical Department. The unit is organized into a headquarters element located in Las Vegas and 3 Health Care Recruiting Companies located in Aurora Colorado, Seattle Washington, and Los Angeles, California. These teams are self-directing elements responsible for all health care recruiting in a given geographical area.
