The U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command (WTC), headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, has revealed its new organizational name and logo. Formally inactivated during a casing of the flag ceremony on June 24, 2016, the WTC now serves as a directorate within the U.S. Army Medical Command and is renamed the Deputy Chief of Staff for Warrior Care and Transition (WCT).
As the WCT logo makes its debut its overall mission remains the same-- ensuring that Soldiers in transition receive world class care and services. Also remaining unchanged is the yellow and black star, representing the oneness of wounded, ill and injured Soldiers with the U.S. Army.
The DCS, WCT will continue to coordinate and integrate the Army's Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP) for wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families or caregivers to promote success in the force or civilian life. Since the WTC was activated in 2009 as the focal point for the WCTP, more than 70,000 wounded, ill and injured Soldiers have passed through the Command's Warrior Transition Units.
During the flag casing ceremony in June, former WTC commander Col. Christopher R. Toner underscored the enduring mission of the organization, saying wounded, ill and injured Soldiers "demonstrate to the world each and every day what it means to never give up. Just remember-- our mission continues. And we will never give up on them."
The transition to the new logo and templates will be incorporated into all internal and external WCT products.
