Family Services

If you are moving here from previous recruiting assignment, you are already used to the unique Army lifestyle. However, if you are new to recruiting, you will find this Army assignment is unique in many way; one we hope you will enjoy and into which you can easily transition.

Think of this office as your mini-Army Community Services. We service roughly 500 people, to include Army recruiters, their families and single soldiers. We look forward to meeting you. If you need assistance, don't hesitate to contact us at (904) 396-4906 or by email.
