Fort Campbell: Physical Therapy That Will Not Quit

 

Written by Mary Therese Griffin
U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition

U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – Make no mistake. Lindsey Davison is a tough physical therapist. She wants results.

The Fort Campbell Kentucky Adaptive Reconditioning Program Manager attended the Warrior Care and Transition Leadership Training Summit in early November at Fort Belvoir, VA where she very candidly told the audience of over 80 plus leaders from the Warrior Transition Battalions, her secret to assist in readiness.

“This is a hard position, I feel, for a battalion commander to be in. Most of the time WTB commanders are not medical officers they are infantry, artillery, etc. and they have a business to run.” Davison feels this is where she and the rest of the WTB staff are there to fully support their commanders.
