This thesis addresses two problems of concern by the U.S. Army Recruiting Command: the realignment of recruiting battalions and companies. For the realignment of the recruiting battalions, this thesis identifies four realignment criteria: (1) proper trade-off between size and density; (2) state ownership; (3) adequate command presence; (4) robustness with respect to shifts in population. In addition, it demonstrates that the realignment based on state boundary satisfies the four criteria and is a strong candidate for implementation by the command. For the realignment of recruiting companies, this thesis provides an optimization model to realign the companies and two statistical forecasting models to predict the size of the future recruiting market in each battalion. When implemented, the combination of the optimization and statistical models can assist the staff members at the Recruiting Command in the realignment of their recruiting companies.
