U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command

What is it?

The Warrior Transition Command (WTC) is a new 1-star command under U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) that serves as the organizational focal point for the Army's Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP). The WTC will have the following core competencies:

• Warrior Care and Transition Program proponent
• Execution and oversight of the Warrior Care and Army Wounded Warrior programs for the MEDCOM commander
• Coordinate and collaborate with MEDCOM, DA staff, other services, other departments and Congress
• Prescribe standardization and evaluation
• Coordinate and collaborate the movement of Warriors in Transition (WTs)
• Oversee, monitor and advise on reserve-component issues

What has the Army done?

The WTC consolidates three existing offices/agencies involved in Army warrior care: the Warrior Transition office (WTO), previously under MEDCOM; the Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2), previously under Human Resources Command; and the Warrior Care and Transition Office (WCTO) previously under the Office of the Chief of Staff, Army. On April 1, 2009, the WTC becomes a provisional command under MEDCOM, with a fully operational capability (FOC) date planned for Oct. 1, 2009.

Why is this important to the Army?

The Warrior Care and Transition Program represents a cultural and organizational shift in how the Army manages outpatient care and transition services for wounded, ill and injured Soldiers. The Warrior Transition Command synchronizes and synergizes the WCTP and the many programs and initiatives that benefit wounded, ill and injured Soldiers and their families, and helps sustain an integrated, comprehensive continuum of care and services that is consistent Army wide. The combining of these organizations will have a dynamic impact on the future success of the Army's Warriors in Transition, either back to the force or to the civilian community.
