Description of Service
The U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command (WTC) is the lead proponent for the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP), which evaluates and treats wounded, ill and injured Soldiers through a comprehensive, Soldier-centric process of medical care, rehabilitation, professional development and achievement of personal goals.
Major elements of the WCTP include:
Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) - provide command and medical management assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army.
U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) – Assists severely wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families throughout their recovery and transition.
Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP) – The CTP is a six-part multidisciplinary process that includes an individual recovery plan that the Soldier customizes and builds with the support of his/her Triad of Care and Family.
Triad of Care – Each WTU Soldier benefits from a squad leader, nurse case manager, and primary care manager assigned to a WTU.
Interdisciplinary Team – The Triad of Care is augmented by an interdisciplinary team of health care and transition specialists who work together to coordinate and optimize the care and transition of each individual Soldier.
Career and Education – WTUs help the Soldier establish short-term and long-term career goals and identify opportunities to enhance existing skills or develop new ones based on the Soldier’s transition track, whether it is remaining in the Army or transitioning from the Army to civilian status.
Internships – Helps Soldiers prepare for civilian employment by helping identify internship opportunities to augment a Soldier's transition.
Health and Recovery – Provides helpful resources on access to medical care and adaptive reconditioning options to help Soldiers achieve their health, fitness, wellness, and resilience goals.
Understanding IDES – WTUs assist Soldiers in understanding and maneuvering the U.S. Army Physical Disability Agency’s (USAPDA) Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES). IDES includes the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) and Physical Evaluation Board (PEB), which determine whether or not wounded, ill and injured Soldiers can continue to perform their duties with their medical condition(s).
Access to SFAC and Other Resources – Soldier and Family Assistance Centers (SFACs) are located at most MTFs to serve Soldiers and their Families. The SFACs offer most of the services available throughout the installation in a central location and can coordinate other services as-needed.
