Air Force recruiting office now open in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The U.S. Air Force has opened a new recruiting office in Sioux Falls.

It is located in the Armed Forces Career Center on Louise Avenue.

The office opened in December and recruiters said they are trying to get the word out about the opportunities that the Air Force offers.

There is also a recruiter in Rapid City, but many potential enlistees from eastern South Dakota were missing out.

"It's to make sure we have coverage across the board," Sgt. Brandon Wigginton said. "I know this is a town that is continuously growing, so just getting somebody back out here is the idea, and try to get as many people as we can in the door."

Wigginton said the Air Force is particular interested in recruiting more aircraft mechanics.
