Military recruiting office moves to Prescott Valley Entertainment District

Young people with in an interest in serving in the U.S. military can now check out the possibilities at a new recruiting site in Prescott Valley.

Matthew Vinson, U.S. Army Sgt. First Class and local station commander, said this past week that a younger demographic and a larger space were among the reasons for a recent move from Prescott to Prescott Valley.

The local military recruiting center moved in April from the Prescott Gateway Mall site it had occupied for about four years to a spot in the Prescott Valley Entertainment District.

“Prescott Valley is growing, and we wanted to move with the (younger) demographic,” Vinson said, noting that traffic by prospective recruits is already up at the new site.

In addition, he said, the new site offers “more than double the space” for the center, which includes representatives of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force.

The recruiting staff consists of six representatives with the Army, three with the Navy, one with the Marines, and one with the Air Force.

Vinson suggests that anyone with an interest in joining the military should call the office at 928-443-8958, or stop by the new office at 2892 N. Park Ave., Suite H, Prescott Valley.
