“Best thing you can do to become a great recruiter is to become a great Soldier.” CSM Butz
2-15. NCOs have roles as trainers, mentors, communicators, and advisors. When junior officers first serve in the Army, their NCO helps to train and mold them. Doing so ensures Soldier safety while forming professional and personal bonds with the officers based on mutual trust and common goals. “Watching each other’s back” is a fundamental step in team building and cohesion.
2-16. Commanders at all levels have senior enlisted advisors who are an important source of knowledge and discipline for all enlisted matters. At the highest level, the Sergeant Major of the Army is the Army Chief of Staff’s personal advisor who recommends policy to support Soldiers throughout the Army.

6-4. Establishing and Maintaining Rapport
Ensure that the school administrators, counselors, and teachers understand why school recruiting is so important, (build the vision…build the culture) not only to the students themselves, but also to the defense of our nation. Many do not understand this and will hinder your ability to establish an effective school program. In addition to personal meetings with administrators, giving presentations to groups of school officials is an effective way to present the message of how serving one’s country is important to the education experience. Schedule a courtesy visit with the principal of each assigned school before the beginning of the academic year. Do so as early in the SY as possible. Remember that at this time of the year the principal is very busy. However, he/she will appreciate your effort to establish this communication link. This will set the tone for the school year concerning your involvement in the school.
“I work for the Governor of the State of _____________.” In cases of emergencies he has a magnet on his refrigerator like I do that has phone numbers on it…Police, Poison, Paramedics…. The big number at the top of the list, bold and underlined, is for the Army National Guard.” Where else can you call a huge group of people from all walks of life, trained by the best military in the world, to bring the best equipment in the world to help in an emergency in 4 hours? We need the help of this generation to face tomorrows crisis.

Two issues: how do we address the issue and what can learn about social media.
