Community Based Warrior in Transition Unit - Virginia
The Community Based Warrior in Transition Unit (CBWTU) is committed to Wounded Warrior care with a focus on medical treatment while the Soldier is at their home. CBWTU provides command and control and medical case management to Army Soldiers injured or ill as the result of their military service during the Global War on Terrorism. This type of treatment allows them to be within their family support network and gives them the ability to receive treatment from local physicians and specialists. The CBWTU program currently serves Army National Guard, Army Reserve Soldiers an on exception Active Component Soldiers. CBWTU-Virginia (VA) is headquartered at the State Military Reservation, Camp Pendleton in Virginia Beach, VA and operates across Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia (Washington, DC).
The unit was previously referred to as Community Based Health Care Organization (CBHCO). On September 16, 2008, Army Medical Command renamed each CBHCO to CBWTU to symbolize it’s realignment into the Warrior in Transition Program.
