    United States ArmyThe United States Army (USA) is the largest branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for land-based military operations. It is the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven U.S. uniformed services.

The army is headed by the Secretary of the Army, and the top military officer in the department is the Chief of Staff of the Army. The highest ranking army officer is currently the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.United States Department of Defense, United States Department of the ArmyUnited States Department of Defense
    United States Army Warrior Transition Command - Warrior Care and Transition ProgramThe U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command (WTC) is the lead proponent for the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP), which evaluates and treats wounded, ill and injured Soldiers through a comprehensive, Soldier-centric process of medical care, rehabilitation, professional development and achievement of personal goals. Major elements of the WCTP include:
    • Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) - provide command and medical management assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army.
    • U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) – Assists severely wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families throughout their recovery and transition.
    • Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP) – The CTP is a six-part multidisciplinary process that includes an individual recovery plan that the Soldier customizes and builds with the support of his/her Triad of Care and Family.
    • Triad of Care – Each WTU Soldier benefits from a squad leader, nurse case manager, and primary care manager assigned to a WTU.
    • Interdisciplinary Team – The Triad of Care is augmented by an interdisciplinary team of health care and transition specialists who work together to coordinate and optimize the care and transition of each individual Soldier.
    • Career and Education – WTUs help the Soldier establish short-term and long-term career goals and identify opportunities to enhance existing skills or develop new ones based on the Soldier’s transition track, whether it is remaining in the Army or transitioning from the Army to civilian status.
    • Internships – Helps Soldiers prepare for civilian employment by helping identify internship opportunities to augment a Soldier's transition.
    • Health and Recovery – Provides helpful resources on access to medical care and adaptive reconditioning options to help Soldiers achieve their health, fitness, wellness, and resilience goals.
    • Understanding IDES – WTUs assist Soldiers in understanding and maneuvering the U.S. Army Physical Disability Agency’s (USAPDA) Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES). IDES includes the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) and Physical Evaluation Board (PEB), which determine whether or not wounded, ill and injured Soldiers can continue to perform their duties with their medical condition(s).
    • Access to SFAC and Other Resources – Soldier and Family Assistance Centers (SFACs) are located at most MTFs to serve Soldiers and their Families. The SFACs offer most of the services available throughout the installation in a central location and can coordinate other services as-needed.

    United States Department of Defense - Army Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL)The Department of Defense Army COOL (Credentialing Opportunities On-Line) helps Army Soldiers find information on certifications and licenses related to their Military Occupational Specialties (MOSs). COOL explains how Soldiers can meet civilian certification and license requirements and provides links to numerous resources to help get them started. COOL is a resource for soldiers who want to know what civilian credentials relate to their MOS and how to obtain them. Education, Career and Transition Counselors provide guidance on education, professional growth, and career requirements and opportunities. COOL contains a variety of information about credentialing and licensing. COOL can be used to:
    • Get background information about civilian licensure and certification in general and specific information on individual credentials including eligibility requirements and resources to prepare for a credentialing exam.
    • Identify licenses and certifications relevant to Army MOSs for enlisted soldiers and Warrant Officers.
    • Learn how to fill gaps between Army training and experience and civilian credentialing requirements.
    • Learn about resources available to Soldiers that can help them gain civilian job credentials.
    When you transition back to civilian employment, credentials help you translate your military training and experience into something civilian employers can easily recognize. That can help you get hired, get a better job, or be promoted sooner.
