First I need to explain the overall concept or in military terms mission of MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Stations), then I will cover how the current economic trends in this society have affected business at the MEPS and finally I will give some personal recommendations that if added, could make the processing flow more smoothly. There are sixty five MEPS throughout the country to include Puerto Rico, Alaska and Hawaii, all of which fall under the authority of USMEPCOM. Each MEPS consist of sections, each with their own specific tasks: Processing, Medical, Testing, Headquarters section and Liaisons who perform services specific to each branch of the military (Army, Navy, Army National Guard, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard). There are managers for each section in each MEPS, some civilian and others military members. I am the manager in charge of the processing section.
