LIMA — The Lima Army recruiting office is looking for the “next greatest generation” of men and women to serve in the United States military branch.

During the city’s weekly media briefing last Wednesday, Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Seamus Garrett called on “exceptional” 17- to 24-year-olds in the region who may have interest in serving to contact the Army’s local recruiting office, 401 W. North St., or to visit goarmy.com for more information. Garrett said he is responsible for recruiting 2,100 future soldiers from the region into the “greatest team in the world.”
