43d AG Reception Battalion - RHU

43d AG home | RHU

Our Mission:

RHU Ravens Provide mission command for Initial Entry Training (IET) Soldiers, discharge Soldiers (DS), IET who enter the medical evaluation board (MEB) process, prior service Soldiers (PSS) and cadre. Reception and Holding Unit (RHU) provides support for IET Soldiers as they first arrive to our reception battalion, ensuring they are assigned to the proper processing company. RHU also prepares disqualified IET Soldiers and IET Soldiers who enter the MEB for separation from the Army, which facilitates forward training unit's ability to conduct their mission without disruption from those who do not meet Army standards. RHU conducts in-processing for the PSS, thus ensuring they are fully re-integrated into our Army systems and the Army way of life. In addition, RHU provides a positive command climate that supports the lives of its cadre and family members.
