Welcome to the Syracuse Recruiting Battalion

To Incoming Soldiers and Family Members:

On behalf of the soldiers, civilians, and family members of the U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion Syracuse, we'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our ranks. The battalion area is rich in history and is a thriving area in which to live in the 21st Century. The natural majesty of Niagara Falls, the grand outdoor experience of the Adirondack State Park, the high-tech research facilities of Cornell University, and the soon-to-be largest shopping mall in America are just a few points of interest in the battalion area. Upstate New York offers something for everyone.

The Battalion's mission is to recruit quality young men and women into the Army, and do so in a manner that upholds the Army's values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. You will work hard, but most of us find Recruiting to be a challenging and fulfilling assignment.

Our battalion is responsible for more than 32,000 square miles, covering Western, Central, and Northern New York State and Northeastern Pennsylvania (go to battalion map). This means that you may be located farther from a military installation than you have ever been, and it is likely that you will be far from your company headquarters as well. For many of you, this is your first dealing with TRICARE Remote. With this in mind, the support provided by Family Readiness Groups and the battalion staff is critical. We encourage family members to participate in our FRGs. Please do not hesitate to contact us before your arrival if you need any assistance at all.

If you have already been assigned to the battalion but have not yet received a pinpoint assignment, please contact the S1 at (315) 479-8532. If you have already been pinpointed but have not yet received a sponsor, please contact your CLT.

Again, welcome to our Recruiting team. Do not hesitate to contact either of us or any member of the Battalion staff if we can help make your transition easier. We look forward to serving with you.
