Soldier Life

why contact a recruiter?

Only by working with a Recruiter can you tailor an Army experience to meet your goals, wants and needs. Want to take advantage of money for your education? Need certain job skills? Your Recruiter can give you the specifics on all the Army benefits to help you make the most out of your Army career.

what's it like talking to a recruiter?

Recruiters are some of the most experienced Soldiers in the Army — that's what makes them qualified to tell you about what the Army has to offer. Some have served overseas, some have seen combat — so you should feel free to ask them about how the Army has helped them meet their goals. Better yet, ask them how the Army can help you reach yours.


I love helping people, and this job just gives me the opportunity to help so many people with so many wide varieties of people, age, creed, sex, it doesn't matter. I believe that the Army has something to offer everyone. And when someone comes in here, I go 100 percent to give them what they want and show them how the Army can help them achieve their goals in life. When they're happy about joining the Army and the career option that they chose it makes me so happy that I helped someone.

So I just don't only recruit, you know, just recruit for the Army, but I also help them in everyday life. I tell kids all the time I could be you know, you need a therapist; you can come talk to me, you can't come talk to your parents, you can always come talk to Sergeant Whaley.
