Have you seen any documentation to support this? It is true that when we are scheduled for appointments, we usually get priority. However, my NCM and Medical Assistant can not seem to find any documentation. Including the WTU-Comprehensive Manual.You will be in unit where your appointments/treatment/care etc. are going to be your priority.
Vae if you have any questions about WTB pls do send them my way I have been in WTB 3.5 yrs and moved from WTB to WTB due to family issues so I am well rounded on the issue. Jason hit the topic there is side backs to any place you are going to be in your process. If you are stationed at Campbell I was stationed there for 9 yrs and was in there WTB last year by all means go to WTB if you are stationed there I left Campbell and came to Gordon due to family issues and this place has been the worst experience in my life. At Campbell the cadre focused on you to do what ever they could to make your transition there and move to the civilian life the easiest they could. They understood you have given your time and life is a struggle for you now so they bend there life around yours. Here at Gordon they act as if you owe them more than they owe you and most are reserve and national guard cadre I mean where as I am Comp 1 and with them never being deployed and acting like I owe them something we tend to bump heads way to much. Also here at Gordon they like to try to throw around Article 15's alot and the crew stand behind one another more than they stand behind the soldiers being treated. If I could give you any info it is do whatever you have to do to take care of yourself and your family and just try to put up with the BS until then but as I said if you are at Ft Campbell the BS is very minimal.[/quote
I really appreciate your reply this whole thing has bee. Crazy for me I have been at campbell for almost all of my 13 years in the army. So this change is kinda scary. And what concerned me is going in there and being treated like a cherry. Sorry to hear u had to go to Gordon. I am still straddling fence on the WTU my unit is not going to push me going there unless I ask. My unit in general is very understanding and will let me jet for appointments or I I am in pain. So it makes the decision hard. I just had hear that WTUs have access to more programs? Hope that shit get better at Gordon brother don't let fobits get you down!!!!
The transitional benefits, access to the SFAC, job opportunities, internship opportunities, etc. alone are invaluable. I have seen nightmare scenarios for junior Soldiers dealing with CoC that don't/won't understand your issues.My unit is pretty laid back, and lets me go to appointments. I am going to be med boarded. I was told by some of my Drs that the WTU soldiers have access to some good programs. And I think the reason the want me to look into it is it is because they worry my unit will still have me doing things I shouldn't be doing
I should have mentioned I was in a CBWTU but you are absolutely correct. The SFAC access alone is invaluable and I ask for TDY orders to go down to the SFAC regularly!SRNCOREMF,
I would highly advise you to do what you can do to get into wtu. There are alot of benefits and programs that are only available to soldiers in the WTU. The fact that you are still with your unit is in itself a disservice to you.
