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.

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.
