Welcome to the Oklahoma City Recruiting Battalion

Welcome to the Oklahoma City Recruiting Battalion! The Oklahoma City Recruiting Battalion covers a large geographic area in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and North Texas. Even though there are major installations in the Battalion area, most of the recruiting stations are geographically far from the battalion. In most cases, it will be in your best interest to live within the recruiting area to which you are being assigned. 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 Facilities Manager at (405) 609-8787 or by e-mailing Lando Carter.

You will be assigned a sponsor and receive a welcome packet from the Battalion. This packet will provide you more information on your assignment and the area to which you are being assigned. For further information, contact the Battalion S-1 at (405) 609-8797 or you can e-mail by clicking here.

If you have family members, it is best that they report with you to the Battalion Headquarters located at 301 NW 6th Street, Suite 218, Oklahoma City, OK 73102. They will be briefed on all aspects of medical and dental plans and coverage. For information on all aspects of Soldier and Family Assistance, contact the Soldier and Family Assistance Program Manager, Mrs. Tara Tyler-Wood, MA, M&FT, at (405)609-8789 or by e-mail.

If you don't hear from your sponsor or would like more information, please contact the Battalion S-1 at 4jbn-s1@usarec.army.mil.

Again, Welcome to the Rough Rider Battalion. Be All You Can Be! We write contracts here!
