Military Entrance Processing Station
The Spokane MEPS has been an active part of the local community since 1965. We provide jobs through our various contracts such as meals and lodging, maintenance and utilities. Additionally, we are conscious of our role as neighbors, friends, and citizens of Spokane. We actively support local recycling programs, sponsor less fortunate families and our employees volunteer their time to various groups and events.
The Spokane MEPS is one of a network of 65 MEPS located nationwide and in Puerto Rico.
A separate Department of Defense (DoD) agency, USMEPCOM is comprised of two geographical sectors and staffed with personnel from all military services.
The mission of USMEPCOM and the Spokane MEPS is to process individuals for enlistment or induction into the armed services, based on DoD-approved peacetime and mobilization standards
Three primary areas are considered in determining an applicant's qualifications for enlistment:
- aptitude for military service
- physical qualification
- background evaluation screening
