Special Operations recruiting station opens

The Special Operations Recruiting Command celebrated the opening of their new recruiting station, March 31 at the Main Post Exchange on Hunter Army Airfield with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Command Sgt. Maj. Tremayne Robbins, Hunter Army Airfield garri­son senior enlisted leader, and Lt. Col. Jody Daigle, Special Operations Recruiting Battalion commander, were on hand to celebrate the grand opening.
Special Operations Recruiting is only open to active duty service mem­bers, differing from standard Army recruiting. This provides a unique opportunity for Soldiers to alter their career trajectory, opening several pathways ranging from special oper­ations civil affairs to Special Forces.
“If it wasn’t for this event and the new office opening up, I wouldn’t have known where to go or who to speak with,” said Spc. Carson Garner, satellite systems operator and main­tainer with the 3rd Infantry Division.
According to Sgt. 1st Class John Bennett, Special Operations recruiter, many people are not aware of the requirements or opportunities and encourages Soldiers to stop by the Exchange for a visit.
