Head of local Army Recruiting Station has big plans for AS
US Army Sergeant First Class (SFC) Miguel Diaz is the new head of the local US Army Recruiting Station, located on the second floor of the Laufou Shopping Center in Nuuuli.
SFC Diaz, originally from Puerto Rico, has been in the Army for 12 years and is an infantryman turned recruiter.
When asked if he enjoys being in the military, Diaz said, "I love it." Being from an island himself, he said he is adapting well to life in the territory and enjoys being here.
Diaz will be heading up the local Army recruiting station for the next three years and says he has a lot of plans as far as "giving back to the community" and implementing outreach programs that involve participation from everyone, not just the age group they are targeting for recruitment.
He referred to the low ASVAB scores in the territory and said he is actively seeking interested teachers or any other individuals who are willing to tutor local students prior to taking the test. Some of his plans include hosting an "Army Day" for the public and holding swearing-in ceremonies for new enlistees during half-time of local sporting events, particularly football.
SFC Diaz's team includes SFC Fenumiai, SFC Uiagalelei, SFC Shimasaki, and SSG Laban-Ilalio.
