FORT KNOX, Ky. – Sgt. 1st Class Dominique Bryant, a native of Goldsboro, North Carolina, serves as a Recruiter at the Special Operations Recruiting Office in Fort Liberty, North Carolina.

Bryant, a Top 13 Recruiter for U.S. Army Recruiting Command, began his Army journey as a Petroleum Supply Specialist. He said he enjoyed this military occupational specialty because of the logistical expertise he gained by providing classes of supply to the force.

As a young Soldier, Bryant graduated Air Assault School after receiving just a single day’s notice he’d be attending, and also went on to graduate Jumpmaster School.  He then went on to served in the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and earn a Bachelor of Science in applied human resource management in 2024 from Grand Canyon University.

“I initially served to provide stability for my family,” Bryant said. “My place of employment was decent, but I had no sense of fulfillment. The Army provided that and more.”

Bryant aspires to earn his master’s degree in management and eventually retire. Outside duty hours, he enjoys vacationing with his family, playing basketball, and watching college basketball.

“During my first enlistment, I realized that I have a passion for serving and developing others,” Bryant said. “The feeling that I have when I see others become the best versions of themselves is unmatched.”

Bryant credits his grandparents for his achievements, citing his grandmother’s lessons in empathy and compassion, and his grandfather’s teachings on morality and the value of hard work.

“Working at USAREC provides predictability,” Bryant said. “No matter what my day entails, I know I will end my day spending time with my family. Additionally, I have more time to dedicate toward personal goals like civilian education.”
