Switching to the Army From Other Military Branches
Do you want to serve your country again, but want to work in a different Service Branch? Come and reenlist with the US Army! If you have prior service (PS) in another branch, there are opportunities waiting for you, if your Reenlistment Eligibility (RE) Code allows for reenlistment.
