Helping Warriors Come Home

Fort Campbell Drawing

The last phase of a $32 million Recovery-funded housing facility for wounded soldiers and their families was recently completed at the U.S. Army’s Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The new Warriors in Transition Barracks (WTB) includes 206 beds in apartment-like modules with bathrooms and kitchenettes.

WTBs are housing complexes designed to help recuperating service men and women who no longer require hospital care but still need a healing environment. Their families are also able to live with them.

Clark Caddell JV of Tampa, Florida, received $25 million in Recovery funds for constructing the Fort Campbell barracks. Nationview, LLC, a small business in Birmingham, Alabama, received $7 million for constructing the administration and operations facilities.

Another WTB built with Recovery funds was opened in June at Fort Bliss, Texas.

    No matter how much money we set aside for the wounded and fallen, it is a debt we can never hope to repay.

    This is a great program and I love what you guys are doing to help the people and their communities. I would like to commend everyone involved.

    It’s hard to believe how many soldiers are left wounded with no means of being able to find a job or even taking care of themselves.
