Caribbean Division Starts Agressive Recruitment Campaign Aimed at Returning Servicemen
OCT 29--FT. BUCHANAN, Puerto Rico – The Caribbean Division recently initiated an aggressive Special Agent recruitment campaign which target returning servicemen on duty at Operation Iraqi Freedom. In collaboration with the Ft. Buchanan U.S. Army Garrison the Caribbean Division prominently displayed a colorful recruitment banner at a heavily transited intersection of this U.S. Army installation. Ft. Buchanan serves as the mobilization station for all U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard units in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Thousands of Reservists and National Guardsmen from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands call Ft. Buchanan home during their mobilization and de-mobilization process. Ft. Buchanan also serves as the only active duty installation in the Caribbean, providing myriad services to the U.S. Armed Forces and federal government agencies trough the Caribbean region. Hundreds of inquires from returning servicemen had been generated as a result of this initiative. The experience, discipline, and special skills of these servicemen are certainly an asset which will benefit our Special Agent corps. By opening the door to a new, challenging and rewarding career once they fulfill their military service and the opportunity to continue fighting for our freedom trough our Nation’s sustained war against drugs is another example DEA support to our troops.
