Welcome to the Southern California Recruiting Battalion


Newest Battle Sharks,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion Southern California. Our mission here is to recruit with integrity the highest quality men and women into the United States Army while taking care of all Soldiers and Family members of our command.

The SoCal Recruiting Battalion is headquartered in Mission Viejo, CA. Our Battalion consists of the Battalion Headquarters, seven recruiting companies and 46 Recruiting Stations. We cover more than 40,000 square miles of Southern California soil stretching from LA County to the Nevada border and south to the Mexican border.

Our region has it all – Mountains, desert and nearly 100 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline.

Our motto is, “Our Standard is Excellence,” meaning we excel at absolutely everything we do.  It is my vision to make this battalion the very best and most productive battalion in all of USAREC.  To do that, I need the best Soldiers this Army has to offer.

I very much look forward to having you join our team, and serve alongside some of the best Soldiers and Civilian Personnel in the Army today.

Battle Sharks!  Army Strong!  Hooah!

LTC John Bleigh - CSM Stephanie Manan
