ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the military training being offered at the U.S. Army Recruiting and Retention School at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. According to Colonel James Comish, commandant of the school, rather than sticking to PowerPoint presentations and lectures, he also wanted to add more experience-based training with more hands-on learning. One part of the experiential training is the establishment of a mock recruiting station, which is fully equipped to resemble the stations the recruiters will eventually occupy.
