Seattle Recruiting Battalion Welcome Packet
The Seattle Army Recruiting Battalion covers a four-state area of Washington, Alaska, portions of Idaho and Oregon. There are several Military Installations that offer family housing to eligible Soldiers and their families who are assigned to Seattle Army Recruiting Battalion. Depending on your particular assignment location, you could be offered housing on an Army Installation, Air Force Base, or Naval Base.
Before traveling, ensure your lodging arrangements have been made. Depending on your final assignment location, you may or may not be near a Military Installation that offers On-Post Housing. Many of our Recruiters reside in areas that are anywhere from 50 or more miles from a Army Post, Air Force Base, Navy Base or Marine Corps Base. In the event you are assigned to a Recruiting Station that falls within the area of a Military Installation that offers On-Post Housing, you are required to contact the specific Installation Housing Office to find out about the waiting time for Government Quarters. Additionally, the Installation may offer Temporary Lodging Facilities, (TLF) for both In-Bound and Out-Bound Soldiers and their Families. Contact the Installation directly to inquire as to availability of Temporary Housing.
