Mayor Haslam talks with members of the Knoxville Recruiting StationThe Knoxville Recruiting station serves Knoxville and Knox County and is the largest recruiting station in East Tennessee. Itís part of Knoxville Company, which includes stations in Oak Ridge, Maryville, Cookeville, Crossville and Middlesboro at least. The Knoxville Recruiting Station is part of the U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion out of Nashville, which deals with recruiting in Tennessee and Kentucky.

It handles new enlistments and re-enlistments of people who have previously served in the Army but have been in the civilian world for awhile.

Mayor Haslam helps cut the grand opening cakeThe station is recruiting well over 100 percent of its goal and in the current fiscal year it has recruited 68 individuals into the Regular Army and 14 into the reserves, both well over its mission.

The station moved from their old station at North Peter's Road a little earlier this year. The new station is at the site of the old Schlotzsky's Deli on Kingston Pike.

For more information about the recruiting station please contact Sgt. 1st Class Martin at 865-690-0473 or Lee Elder at 615-871-4172.
