Welcome to the Indianapolis Recruiting Battalion


Welcome to the Indianapolis Recruiting Battalion! The Indianapolis Battalion covers a large geographic area in both the states of Indiana and Illinois. In most cases, it will be in your best interest to live within the recruiting area to which you are being assigned as most stations are not located near a major installation. With the work hours in recruiting, travel time to and from work should be limited to the least amount possible to provide more quality time spent with your family. For information regarding the Government Leased Housing Program, contact the USAREC Housing Office at usarechousingoffice@usarec.army.mil or by telephone at 803-751-8787 or 803-751-8802 or DSN 734-8787 or 734-8802.

You will receive a welcome letter from the Battalion Command Sergeant Major, be assigned a sponsor, and receive a welcome packet from your Company. This packet will provide you with more information on your assignment and the area to which you are being assigned. For further information, contact the Battalion S-1 at (317) 549-1923/1944. If you have family members, it is best that they report with you to the Battalion Headquarters located at 9152 Kent Avenue Bldg 401-C, Indianapolis, IN 46216. They will be briefed on all aspects of medical and dental plans and coverage. For information on all aspects of Soldier and Family Assistance, please contact the Family Support/FRG at (317) 549-1780.

If you don't hear from your sponsor or would like more information, please contact the Battalion S-1 at (317) 549-1923/1944.

Again, Welcome to the Indianapolis Recruiting Battalion.
