Report: Army Plans Military Transition Assistance Center in San Antonio, Texas

The U.S. Army wants to establish a facility in San Antonio, Texas, that will offer housing, healthcare and employment assistance to military veterans as they transition back into civilian life, Fox San Antonio reported Wednesday.

Emily Baucum writes the service branch aims to open the military transition support center near Fort Sam Houston next year.

Kevin Wolff, Bexar County commissioner, said the local government will be in contact with active-duty military units before they transition out of service in an effort to help them identify housing, physical and mental healthcare and job opportunities, according to the report.

The report noted that the service branch might apply the concept nationwide if the San Antonio facility produces positive results.
