Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Warrior Transition Battalion?

The Warrior Transition Battalion is a unit whose sole purpose is to care for wounded, ill, or injured Soldiers. We provide leadership, advocacy, medical care, and case management for Soldiers to enable them to heal and transition either back into the Army or to becoming civilian Veterans.

Who are our Soldiers?

Our Soldiers are wounded, ill, or injured servicemembers who require complex medical care. We take care of Soldiers from all Army components- active duty, national guard, and reserve.

Why was the Warrior Transition Battalion created?

The Warrior Transition Battalion was created as part of the Army Medical Action Plan, developed in 2007 by U.S. Army Medical Command. The plan called for the development of warrior transition units throughout the country to provide proactive leadership, case management, and holistic care for our Soldiers; WTUs replaced the former medical hold units.

How do I get involved?

The Warrior Transition Battalion is fortunate to be involved with numerous community collaborations and to receive an incredible level of community support. If you would like to be involved in supporting our wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, please contact Community Outreach at 253-306-2063, or email the Public Affairs Office.

What's next?

The Warrior Transition Battalion's programs and resources for our Warriors are continually evolving. In January 2013, we moved into our new WTB headquarters building, which we share with the Soldier and Family Assistance Center. This move completed the WTB campus, bringing us right next door to our Soldiers' new barracks (completed in 2011). The barracks boast 204 two-bedroom suites and a covered courtyard, and along with our headquarters, are just a short walk to Madigan Army Medical Center.
