What is USMEPCOM?
Young people who are looking to enlist in the military will probably at some point come across a very long acronym: USMEPCOM. It stands for the United States Military Entrance Processing Command. It’s part of the Department of Defense (DOD…another acronym you’ll come across). The USMEPCOM is charged with the responsibility of screening and processing individuals interested in enlisting in the Marine Corps, army, navy, air force or any US military branch. Its headquarters are in North Chicago, IL and it overseas all of the MEPS (military entrance processing stations) throughout the nation, 65 in all.
