Re: “Still screwed

nice article, coincides with the challenges the WTUs at other units had documented.

WTU's had the highest article 15 rate on posts where there were combat arms units.


the WTu's have a fragemtne line of command. the Warrior Transition Command is under a General Oficer carrying the title of "Assistant Surgeon General", but is not a surgeon/AMEDD officer. WTU's at the garison/base command level fall under the chain of command of the local Medical Command Facility.
The installation Management Command is responsible for housing facilities, and soldier Family resource facilities.

Google Warrior transition Command to get that background.

Finally , since everything is going thru a quantative metric analysis of medical retention etc. one should be able to get a report of outcome statistics.specifically.

breakdown of succesfully treated and returned to duty patients vs those medically discharged or retired.

Break down of those service members recieving one type of disability compensation assesment from the Army, vs the evaluation they recieve from the VA.

Break down of deaths in the system due to suicide, or "Accidental " overdosages.


breakdown of punitive actions such as article 15s, administrative actions creating less than honorable discharges etc, then contrast those to the units on the same base.

Breakdown on alcohol related incidents, contrast to those on post.

Break it down by each WTU, from there one may determine wether this institution is process driven or personality driven. (one should be able to deduce what one unit is doing "Right")

thanks for the article.
