U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps Recognizes Warrior Care Month

FORT SAM HOUSTON, TEXAS – Nov. 12, 2015–November is Warrior Care Month, a time for the Army to recognize the strength of its wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, their families, and the healthcare providers that make it their daily mission to support their recovery.  

More than 3,100 professional military and civilian corps healthcare professionals work together in support of the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP). The WCTP evaluates and treats wounded, ill and injured Soldiers by providing the integrated care required to transition back into military or civilian life.

“Warrior Care Month is a time to reflect on the rewarding nature of working as an Army Health Readiness Civilian and honor the wounded, ill and injured Soldiers whom we work to support on a daily basis,“ says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division.  

The WCTP consists of 25 Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) located at Army treatment facilities across the country.  The personalized support wounded soldiers receive at WTUs is a result of the dedicated team of civilian and military healthcare professionals who work together to ensure integrated care for the wounded.

Civilians, comprising over 60% of the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps, play an integral role in caring for service members, veterans, and their families. They have the rewarding job of working alongside their military counterparts, providing world class health care at Army treatment facilities worldwide.  To learn more, visit
