Welcome to the Nashville Recruiting Battalion! The Nashville Battalion covers a large geographic area in both the states of Tennessee and Kentucky. Even though there are two major installations in the Battalion area, most of the recruiting stations are geographically far from these. 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 (615) 871-9727 or by emailing the TCCO.

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 (615) 871-4078 or you can email by clicking here.

If you have family members, it is best that they report with you to the Battalion Headquarters located at 2517 Perimeter Place Dr., Nashville, TN 37214. They will be briefed on all aspects of medical and dental plans and coverage. For information on all aspects of Soldier and Family Assistance, Click Here.

For addition newcomer information, please contact the Battalion S-1 at 5nbn-S1@usarec.army.mil.
