Army Holds 2014 Warrior Care and Transition Program

Alexandria, Va. - This week, the Warrior Transition Command (WTC) hosted the 2014 Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP) Leader's Training Summit from August 4 - August 7, 2014. Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) leaders from across the United States received instruction on WCTP policies and procedures in order to standardize execution of the WCTP and improve operations across all WTUs, including Community Care Units (CCUs). Attendees included Warrior Transition Office directors and WTU command teams.

"The Army is committed to the mission of serving our wounded, ill and injured Soldiers," said WTC Commander Col. Chris Toner. "The leaders working directly with these soldiers, their families and caregivers epitomize Army values through their dedication to supporting those who have served their nation."

The summit also allowed participants to address WTU soldier issues, develop solutions for persistent program challenges, exchange ideas and share demonstrated best practices to improve how the Army supports for wounded, ill and injured soldiers and their families. The summit participants participated in classroom sessions on a variety of topics, including career and education readiness, WTU entry and exit procedures and disability evaluation processes.

"Just hearing the things that are going on in other units, I realize we're all going through the same thing," said Capt. Robert Monzon, commander of the WTU at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. "We have the same issues we're trying to resolve. We're all here for the Soldiers."
