New Complex For Wounded Soldiers
By KRWG News
Fort Bliss – The Army has broken ground on a new housing complex for wounded soldiers.
The $56 million complex will house Fort Bliss's Warrior Transition Battalion, an Army battalion made up of wounded soldiers.
The three-building project is being funded with federal stimulus money and is scheduled to open next year.
Once complete, the complex will have a barracks capable of housing 250 soldiers, a family support center and office space for the battalion's leadership.
