318th Chemical Company supports recruiting events
Soldiers of the 318th Chemical Company (CM CO) out of Birmingham, Ala., supported the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Magic City football classic event, Oct. 25-29, 2016, in order to enhance recruiting efforts and to promote awareness of the benefits of Army Reserve service in the HBCU community. Participation in the MCC provided the Army with school visits and utilized the Go Army Experience Tour assets in order to employ Soldiers to engage and connect with prospects during activations. The Army stage (fitness trailer) was used for participants to compete in a timed, three-tiered challenge: TRX Machine, Vision Coach, and Push-Up/Sit-Up Mat. These activities provided the opportunity for recruiters to interact, encourage or participate with prospects and influencers. It also allowed recruiters to gauge prospects fitness levels.
