    American Military Partner AssociationThe American Military Partner Association (AMPA) is the nation’s premier resource and support network for LGBT military spouses and their families. As a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization, AMPA is committed to education, advocacy, and support for our modern military families. Although same-gender military spouses now finally have federal recognition and access to military benefits, our families still face unique challenges and exclusion by state governments and organizations and are still waiting for equal access to earned veterans benefits. With over 20,000 members and supporters, we are committed to continuing to make a difference in their lives. Since 2009, AMPA has stepped up to fill the void for these silent heroes.

    American Red Cross, Service to the Armed Forces - Emergency CommunicationsWhen a military family experiences a crisis, the American Red Cross is there to help. Wherever their military service takes them, service members can rest assured that the Red Cross will deliver notification of an emergency such as the death or serious illness of an immediate family member, as well as the good news of the birth of a service member's child or grandchild. Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, the Red Cross relays urgent messages containing accurate, factual, complete and verified descriptions of the emergency to service members stationed anywhere in the world, including on ships at sea and at embassies and remote locations. Even if the service member receives an email or phone call from home, Red Cross-verified information assists the member and his/her commanding officers with making a decision regarding emergency leave. Knowing in advance that communication links, access to financial assistance and information and referral will be available in an emergency brings peace of mind to service members and to the families from whom they are separated.AlleghenyAllegheny County OfficeAmerican Red Cross Southwestern Pennsylvania Chapter
    United States Army Warrior Transition Command - Warrior Care and Transition ProgramThe 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.
