Wounded, ill and injured Soldiers requiring at least six months of rehabilitative care and complex case management are assigned to a Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) or a Community Based Warrior Transition Unit (CBWTU). In order to be considered for entry in the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP), Soldiers must meet specific program entry and eligibility requirements based on component. Information for Family members about in-processing and throughout the Soldier’s transition status is available.
In-processing begins once a wounded, ill and injured Soldier is assigned or attached to a WTU or CBWTU. Upon entering a WTU, the Soldier will in-process to the new unit through the Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC). The WTU Interdisciplinary Team of both clinical and non-clinical staff will provide support to you and your Family during in-processing and throughout your time in the WTU.
After in-processing, the Soldier’s primary focus during his or her time in a WTU is to heal and recover. For more information on what the Soldier and Family members can expect after in-processing, visit the rehabilitation page.

The SL or PSG will help to resolve any administrative issues that arise and provide guidance regarding Warrior Care and Transition Processes. There is also an Interdisciplinary Team of both clinical and non-clinical staff that will provide care and support to you and your Family so that you can focus on your mission to heal.
