OBLIGATION TO OUR SERVICE MEMBERS:
President Lincoln's second inaugural address so eloquently states what our obligations are to families of wounded service members:
"... to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan."
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
The Army Reserve Warrior Transition Program is the proponent to provide centralized assistance in clarifying administrative, legal, and medical concerns that warrants Army Reserve engagement as Soldiers in Transition navigate through their Comprehensive Transition Plan.
In 2012, the Army Reserve Command Team conducted several visits to Warrior Transition Units (WTU) and Community Care Units (CCU) in CONUS and OCONUS to meet with our Wounded Warriors to thank them for their service and ensure their needs were being met by their WTU Chain of Command. During these visits, Army Reserve Soldiers in Transition expressed a need for assistance with administrative, medical and legal issues requiring OCAR/USARC staff engagement to resolve. The Army Reserve Warrior Transition Program was created in 2013 to assist Reserve Soldiers with troubleshooting obstacles presented during their path of healing. Support Coordinators are ready to engage at all times to facilitate the process and assist when needed. In 2020, the WTU transitioned to the Soldier Recovery Unit (SRU).
