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.

KENTUCKY — Chris Rutledge, Louisville District project engineer, indicates where the pin carrier is attached to hooks to transport the 800-pound pins made of nickel clad carbon steel with a chrome overlay at the Markland Locks and Dam here, Feb. 10, 2011. In remarkably good shape after a decade securing a culvert valve to its housing within one of the main chamber recesses, the pins are being replaced as part of a Recovery Act-funded project to fit the lock with new valves.The carrier is the creation of Aquarius Marine, the Kentucky based subcontractor doing the ARRA-funded work.
