The Montgomery MEPS supports the local community and shares the normal ties of every other local business. We provide jobs through our various contracts such as meals and lodging, maintenance and utilities. Finally, we add to our state by recycling paper and aluminum as well as by participating in volunteer projects such as scouting, Combined Federal Campaign.

The Montgomery 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 Montgomery 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
