Recruiting Command
Our mission is to “Recruit with integrity high quality men and women to meet army mission requirements while caring for all members of the command.” 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 Recruiting Command is responsible for manning both the Active Army and 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 Europe and Asia.

The USAREC headquarters provides the command, control and staff support to the recruiting force. The more than 400 officers, enlisted members and civilian employees of USAREC headquarters work in diverse areas such as personnel, administration, resource management, and safety. Many work in specialized fields, such as market research and analysis, advertising and public affairs, and information management. The command also has its own inspector general, staff judge advocate and headquarters company.
