To provide command and control, primary care, and case management for Warriors in transition to establish conditions for healing and promote the timely return to the force or transition to continue serving the nation as a veteran in their community. Community based Warriors in transition unit (CBWTU) also play a big part in the WTU Program. A CBWTU function as a WTU for WT’s who receive medical care in their community, at Department of Defense, TRICARE, or Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care facilities. The CBWTU primarily provides outpatient care management and transition services for Army Reserve and National Guard WT’s who do not need the day-to-day medical management provided by WTU’s on Army Installations. Clinical care requirements determine whether a WT is assigned to a WTU or CBWTU.
Provide assistance in taking care of SCARNG WTU Soldiers and notifying units when a Soldier is released from the WTU Program. Also conducting monthly WTU visits to the Soldiers in this program and making sure they’re getting the proper care and guidance they need to help speed up their recovery process and REFRAD (release from active duty) back to their units or possible retirement.
Understanding each Soldier, each illness or injury and various factors contribute to the uniqueness of each case. We will continue to visit our Soldiers on a monthly basis and conduct musters for our Soldiers who are in the CBWTU Units. We will also provide personal budget assistance and push the 365 day release from the WTU Program.
