ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. (AFNS) -- Air Force Reserve Command Recruiting Service has met the command’s accession goal for the 16th consecutive year.

Lt. Gen. Maryanne Miller, the AFRC commander, sent a congratulatory message to recruiters praising them for meeting their fiscal year 2016 goal.

“You and your team are amazing,” Miller said. “The leadership, collaboration, willpower and dedication by our recruiters, all wings, (Numbered Air Forces) and the command enabled these efforts to make us the incredible force that we are for this nation.”

For fiscal 2016, Reserve recruiters not only reached their goal but surpassed it, ending the year with 8,562 accessions equating to 100.7 percent of the goal.

“In a year where we faced many obstacles and challenges, our recruiters really stood up to the challenge and have once again proven they are absolutely the best in the Department of Defense,” said Col. Christopher Nick, the AFRC Recruiting Service commander. “We were tasked to grow end strength by 2,100 personnel and we not only met it, but we exceeded it. That was the biggest challenge.”

One of the other challenges Recruiting Service faced was reaching the goal of 8,500 with a relatively inexperienced recruiting force. Sixty percent of the line recruiters have less than two years’ experience, 30 percent of the in-service recruiters have less than a year, and 42 percent of the flight chiefs have less than a year, according to officials.
