April 8, 2019

Army recruiters SSG Jacob Swanson and SSG Juan Taylor talk about how they encourage Millennials and Gen Z to consider an Army career, with podcast hosts Nzinga Curry, Director, AUSA’s Institute of Land Warfare, and MAJ Brad Cooper, Army Fellow. With so many career opportunities, Army recruiters are helping young people connect with their life goals. Where else can you combine the excitement of combat training, 150+ job choices and education for life after service? The strength of a Nation is in the strength of its Soldiers.
