Warrior Transition Brigade Soldier Spec. Deidre Olivas, said her new room is better than some apartments and is grateful for WTB supplying everything a Soldier needs. She's especially thankful for the no-lip walk-in shower because she doesn't have to worry about tripping anymore. The new barracks, which can house up to 320 soldiers, include a selection of ADA-compliant rooms with roll-in showers, kitchen counters and desks to accommodate wheel chairs and wheelchair-accessible washer and dryers. Handrails are installed throughout hallways as well as in all private bathrooms. Each room is equipped with a single bed, computer desk with hutch, walk-in closet, ceiling fans, full-length mirror, night stand, ergonomic task chair, dresser and lamp. Large, energy efficient windows allow for more natural light in the rooms. There are room-darkening blinds for those sensitive to light.
