Warrior Transition Battalions (WTBs)
The U.S. Army established Warrior Transition Battalions (WTBs) at major military treatment facilities (MTFs) located around the world. WTBs provide personalized support to wounded, ill and injured Soldiers who require at least six months of rehabilitative care and complex medical management.
A WTB closely resembles a “line” Army unit, with professional Cadre and integrated Army processes that build on the Army’s strength of unit cohesion and teamwork so that wounded Soldiers can focus on healing before transitioning back to Army or civilian status. Within a WTB, wounded, ill and injured Soldiers work with their Triad of Care – primary care manager (normally a physician), nurse case manager, and squad leader – who coordinate their care with other clinical and non-clinical professionals.
Community Care Units (CCUs) 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. Soldiers whose medical situation allows may receive the same services at a CCU, a unit within the WTB, while recovering at home through the TRICARE network with the support of their Families and communities.
