Welcome Packet

Welcome to the 6th Recruiting Brigade team – “Outriders”!  On behalf of the entire Brigade, we would like to welcome you and your Family.  Our Brigade’s vision is simple:  Be a team of world-class talent scouts and Army ambassadors in the towns we live in. 

Though the Brigade headquarters is in North Las Vegas, our seven battalions recruit across the largest geographic region of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, covering the 11 most-western states including OCONUS locations in Hawaii, Alaska, Korea, Japan and the Pacific Islands of Guam, Samoa and the Marshall Islands.  No matter which of our seven Battalions you are assigned to, you are close to some of the most captivating and majestic wonders of the world with some exciting and spectacular activities to keep you busy during your leisure time.

If you are moving here from a previous recruiting assignment welcome to the West!  If you’re new to recruiting, you’ll find this assignment is unique in many ways and one that we hope you and your family will enjoy.  Whether new or returning, we want to ensure your transition to the Brigade is as smooth and stress free as possible.

During your transition, your sponsor, the Soldier and Family Assistance Program Manager (SFAPM), and your Chain of Command will assist you in making a safe and smooth transition.    Because we are so dispersed your single most important resource is your sponsor.  Typically, a new Soldier will spend at least one day in-processing at the Battalion Headquarters before continuing on to their final duty location.  Your sponsor will be someone from your recruiting area who has firsthand knowledge of the community and will assist you through your PCS until you are comfortably settled.

In addition, the 6th Recruiting Brigade website 6th Recruiting Brigade (army.mil); there is an abundance of relocation-specific web sites and resources available to assist you, too. MilitaryOneSource, http://www.militaryonesource.mil/moving and Military Installations, http://www.militaryinstallations.dod.mil, provide relocation tools and information on over 250 installations to include your new USAREC Battalion.  If this is your first PCS, Plan My Move (PMM) is another valuable resource with detailed to-do lists, checklists, contact information, and much more.

We look forward to serving with you in the best Brigade in USAREC.  Outriders!

A legacy of servant leadership –  

The Outrider Brigade is a cohesive team of professionals who are mentally, physically, and emotionally fit, and who lead by example with the utmost character, competence, and commitment to win.
We will accomplish this through:

  • Enforcing standards & discipline at all times. Lead by example and never look past a problem. Our expectation is that you fix the problem or alert someone who can.

  • ​Balancing recruiting, administrative requirements, and training. Time demands on Recruiting NCOs and staff are high; find creative ways to maximize everyone’s time to achieve the highest of standards and produce results.

  • Exploiting opportunities to develop Leaders & enforce the Warrior Ethos. Mentor, educate, and give our teammates opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.

  • Partnering with stakeholders to ensure our teammates succeed. There are a myriad of resources/stakeholders we must leverage to succeed. Effectively communicate with them, build rapport, and leverage them to maximum effect.



The United States Army’s 6th Recruiting Brigade, in conjunction with community and Army partners, recruits qualified volunteers across the western United States and the Pacific Rim to increase the Army’s end strength and provide quality recruits to our Army and our nation’s communities.

  1. We focus and prioritize care of our Soldiers, Families, and Civilians
  2. We set the conditions to enable our Team to achieve mission accomplishment within the commander’s intent.
  3. We ensure our teammates develop/maintain the disciplined initiative, skills, and mindset to win for our Army.



1. Be and lead those who:

  • Are leaders of character for our Army.
  • Demonstrate the life skills of a professional Soldier / Officer.
  • Demonstrate agility in thought, critical thinking, and problem solving.
  • Understand the importance of treating all with dignity and respect.
  • Are motivated to achieve excellence in all developmental domains (Intellectual, Military, Physical, Moral-Ethical, Social)

2. Develop yourself and others to:

  • See the bigger picture.
  • Adapt and operate within our unit culture and expectations.
  • Become skilled in working and communicating with people outside the U.S. Army.
  • Create dialogue through informal communication and formal communication like counseling to capture relevant points, discuss expectations, and ensure engaged leadership that gets after caring for your subordinates.

3. Engage the community:

  • Ruthlessly prospect.
  • Perform community service.
  • Provide support to high schools, community colleges, and universities.
  • Provide support to fellow government agencies.
  • Develop relationships with community leaders, veterans, and other officials within our market.



  • Golden Rule - Always treat others as you want to be treated.  Always treat others with dignity and respect.  When we adhere to this simple rule, we foster a positive command climate and eliminate SHARP, EO, EEO, and toxic command climate issues.   
  • Lead by example – ensure your actions match your words. Model the behaviors that you expect from your team. I expect you to conduct yourselves professionally, as you and your recruiting NCOs are often the only interaction some people have with the Army. Empathy and interpersonal skills are crucial qualities for leaders in the recruiting environment, and teamwork is essential for effective functioning due to limited resources.
  • Mission Command - Each one of you executes in a completely unique environment.  No two companies or stations are exactly alike and you know your footprint better than anyone else.  Execute the best you can with the resources you have available in your environments. Achieve and Win! 

Mission command requires:

Trust...you trust me and me trusting you. Our communities trusting in you and in their Army.

Accountability – accountable to our peers, subordinates, and seniors.

Connection – Are you connected to the community around you?  Are you connected with your Soldiers and their families in a way to ensure great care and achievement?

I look forward to developing our relationship on a foundation built on trust.

“We can, we will!”
