Waukegan U.S. Army Career Center Moves Location.

Byline: Brent Curry

WAUKEGAN, Illinois -- In order to better serve the public, the U.S. Army Career Center in Waukegan has moved locations. The new location is located at 726 B North Green Bay Rd.

Since 1973, the US Army has been an all-volunteer service, necessitating the sustainment of career centers throughout the nation. The U.S. Army Career Center is a free resource to facilitate military accessions in the US Army Active Duty and US Army Reserve.

Staffed by trained and vetted recruiting professionals, the center actively recruits potential candidates with no prior service experience, and those who have served before. Information is available regarding a variety of topics, which include educational benefits, military pay, specialized training, travel, and leadership development.

Visiting the center does not constitute obligation to join, but rather to provide information for prospective Soldiers to make informed decisions.

Currently, only about 29 percent of youth meet the Army's cognitive, physical and moral requirements for service and Only about one percent of the U.S. population serves in the military.

Media interested in interviewing Ward about his Army experiences can contact Mr. Tim Turpin with U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion, Chicago at 224-538-3556 or timothy.m.turpin.civ
