    I met someone who was doing a two week hometown recruiting gig and he said he loved it. Basic was fresh in his head, and he enjoyed being looked up to by all of the potential recruits.


    It all begins February 16th 2010!

    Hometown recruiting:

    "Hometown" is primarily used as a generic term for the city or town in which someone was born or grew up.
    "recruitment" is the act of requesting people, usually male adults, to join a military voluntarily

    On a serious note, I to do not know what this envolves, is it a special program the CG has?

    I believe it is when you help out with the recruiting office that you were processed out of as their non-rate because the station you are assigned to is underway, in dry dock, or otherwise unaccessible.

    I'm not sure that is the case Bored. Many recruits in my company knew that they were doing HTR before they even filled out their Assignment Data Card.

    my daughter did hometown recruiting for more than a month. i personally don't recommend it. at least not for any length of time. go to your station and settle in while you are still "squared away" from bootcamp. it will make the transition much easier in the long run. just my two cents!

    I loved my HTR. I had two weeks of it. More time at home after basic than the traditional 5 days. Got to relax in the office, tell potential recruits what BC is really like, go to schools, let your recruiter know what he/she may have "lied" to you about, and do other fun stuff-all while getting paid!

    If I ask for hometown recruiting can I also specify how many days I would like. I only want to do a week of hometown recruiting because my apartment lease is up the same month I am graduating and I don't want to pay another months rent only to have to move to another place and have to come up with a deposit, first an last months rent. I would like to save my 5 days for when my family comes to visit.

    Depends on your recruiter, but you should be good with only a week.

    Typically it is a station, as you would have time constraints between boot and guaranteed A schools

    Unless you have a guaranteed school, there is a mandatory 4 month wait between boot camp and putting your name on an "A" school list. At the end of that it comes down to Command approval. Being an HTR won't sway things either way.

    And... Hometown Recruiting cannot be combined with a guaranteed A school. Believe me, I tried to get it for an applicant. It is viewed as a 'one or the other' situation by the powers that be.

    I only offer it to those applicants that live within a reasonable commuting distance of the recruiting office. Obviously, since we have a recruiting area that stretches over 5 hours away (driving time), it's not feasible to offer it to everyone.
