>>Moving them to these secure facilities will enable security and I dont believe recruiting would suffer.
When I joined the Navy in 1980, all the recruiters in my town were on the 3rd floor of the Federal Building. But, the DoD decided to move them to strip malls for accessibility. Unfortunately, accessibility means less security.
You are correct. Once upon a time Recruiting Centers were in Federal Buildings. They weren’t secure buildings back then, but they are now. We also have secure Court Houses, Guard and Reserve Armory’s and Military Installations.
