The recruitment officer is an Earth Army officer who, in 3001, recruited Fry and Bender. [2ACV17] In 3009, he attended the ceremony for the implosion of the violet dwarf star. [ItWGY] In 3010, he attended Planet Express's 100th-delivery party. [6ACV12]

In 3013, by when he was a sergeant, the officer was awarded the Purple Heart for finding the remote control of the Oval Office's T.V. for President Nixon. [7ACV19] Because the Purple Heart is awarded to people who have been wounded or killed and the officer had not been wounded, Nixon shot him with a laser gun, seemingly in the heart.
