Partnerships between communities and U.S. Army Recruiting Command are vital elements to bridging the gap between the American public and the military. About 50 percent of today's youth admit they know little to nothing about the military - you can help us change this statistic by educating youth and their influencers about the career, education and leadership opportunities the Army offers.
"I know not everyone will choose to serve and I also know not everyone is cut out for the military, but I think they all deserve the chance to consider it as an option. I am confident we wouldn't be so challenged by the lack of qualified youth if those who met the standards had the opportunity to fully understand the career, education and leadership opportunities the Army provides."
