USARECs tactical organizations recruiting centers are responsible for prospecting and recruiting professional individuals that will volunteer for a job serving as a Soldier. Their main effort involves identifying and creating the Soldier of 2025 that will fight to win any complex operating environment. Daily NCOs engage local communities to find individuals to enlist despite the changing United States (US) society where 7 out of 10 prospects do not qualify to enlist into the Army.

Sometimes we forget our lanes and revert back to what we knew as a Non Commissioned Officer. In today’s Army the Warrant Officer has to play more of an integral role in the company for mentorship and professional development for enlisted and officers

We fall in line with officers in general, being the senior mentor and leader in the organization.
