Talking To A Recruiter: The Benefits

what's it like talking to a recruiter?

Recruiters are some of the most experienced Soldiers in the Army, and they  are qualified to tell you about what the Army has to offer. Some have served overseas, and some have seen combat. You should feel free to ask them about their experiences and how the Army has helped them meet their goals.


I contacted Sergeant Whaley and he told me to come in so he could talk with me, and we sat down and he told me my options that I had, what to look forward to, what to expect and left the choice up to me.

I didn't know how the procedure was. Sergeant Whaley told me that once I enlist and I qualify to make it to the Army he said that he would work with me and I really was unaware I didn't know that they did that. I thought that I was just going to sign the papers and just go straight off to basic.

I am a little bit anxious to go to basic, a little nervous. But I'm excited at the same time and Sergeant Whaley has been working with me twice a week and just kind of getting me prepared both physically and mentally and its worked out. So, I'm ready to go.
