Welcome to the Jacksonville Recruiting Battalion
The Hammer of the South! The Jacksonville Battalion is comprised of five companies: Jacksonville, Gainesville, Daytona Beach, Valdosta, and Savannah; our 24 recruiting stations are dispersed across northern Florida and southern Georgia.
We look forward to getting to know all of our new Team Hammer Soldiers and Families. To be clear, our priorities are:
- Caring for and protecting Soldiers and Families
- Training and Leader Development
- Recruiting Operations
We know that you’re likely interested in quality of life topics such as housing, child care, medical care, and local schools. We encourage you to contact your gaining company and station to gain a better understanding of the environment where you and your family will reside. Moreover, the Battalion S1, the Battalion Soldier & Family Advocacy Program Manager, and the Battalion Command Group remain available to help make your transition as smooth as possible.
