Military Salute: Warrior Transition Battalion

Posted: Updated:
HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

Fort Stewart commanders celebrated the conclusion of four years of construction with the opening of the headquarters building for the Warrior Transition Battalion. 

The three story headquarters houses the 170 staff members who help more than 500 injured and ill soldiers at a time.

"The primary mission of this battalion is the healing of soldiers. It had to be designed a little differently," explained Fort Stewart Medical Services Commander Colonel Ronald Place. "This building is perfectly designed to facilitate medical management of the battalion as well as command management of soldiers."

The battalion complex includes short term housing for soldiers, medical and rehab facilities, and administrative offices for commanders. The WTB serves soldiers from the Third Infantry and from units across the Southeastern United States.
