The Raleigh Recruiting Battalion evolved from the Recruiting Main Station Raleigh, organized in 1965. It was originally given responsibility for recruiting for the entire state of North Carolina. At that time it was composed of two recruiting areas, one headquartered in Raleigh and the other in Charlotte. There were only 43 field recruiters initially located in 24 recruiting stations.  

In 1972 North Carolina was divided into two independent recruiting districts. The Raleigh District Recruiting Command (DRC) was given responsibility for the eastern 53 counties. The DRC maintained its headquarters in Raleigh and organized three area headquarters, located in Fayetteville, Greenville and Raleigh.  

In the mid-1970’s, five of Raleigh’s DRC’s northeastern coastal counties were realigned with Richmond, Virginia (DRC).  

In 1978 USAREC assumed responsibility for reserve recruiting in addition to the Regular Army mission.  

On October 1, 1983, District Recruiting Commands were designated Recruiting Battalions. The areas became U.S. Army Recruiting Companies. These changes were made in an attempt to bring USAREC's structure closer to the mainstream Army.  

In the early 1990’s, the Charlotte Recruiting Battalion was disbanded and the Raleigh Recruiting Battalion became the headquarters for recruiting most of North Carolina with the Columbia, South Carolina Recruiting Battalion responsible for the remainder of the western counties.  

Today the Raleigh Recruiting Battalion has over 268 Regular Army and Reserve soldiers and civilians. The Battalion is represented throughout North Carolina by 6 Recruiting Companies, 39 Stations. The Battalion has operational control of two Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS), one in Raleigh and the other located in Charlotte.   The Battalion is committed to serve the Army and the Nation by recruiting the finest young men and women available for the United States Army.
