 ” The soldiers who are placed in the Warrior Transition Battalion need six months or more of complex medical care. They come from different Army units, and some will remain in the Army after their time in the battalion, while others will eventually return to civilian life.”  The goal of this organizational day was to create a fun, morale boosting  event for the entire battalion of  warriors and their families.  Soldiers’ Angels was honored to donate all the prizes for this event and to help with the volunteering on the day.  If you didn’t help out this time, I highly recommend rolling up your sleeves and being a part of future events for the WTB.  They are an inspiring and  wonderful group of people to spend time with.

Helmets to Hardhats

FORT LEWIS, Wash. – A Soldier with a smile on her face and a hard hat on her head wore a name tag that read “Happy Puppy.”

The Soldier, Spc. Candice Hirsch, said the name signified experiencing a really good day.

“Today, I’m a happy puppy,” she said.

Hirsch, a Soldier in the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Lewis, was building homes for families in need with the Habitat for Humanity nonprofit organization on June 12.

After developing a few fractures in her feet while stationed in Korea, her ability to walk was compromised. Since her surgery in January, she started walking again and looking for ways to help out.

She said volunteering with Habitat for Humanity helped keep her mind and body active.
Hirsch wasn’t alone.

About 40 Soldiers from the battalion dedicated June 10 through June 12 to doing projects for the organization – roofing, painting, scaffolding and excavating.

The three-day event was organized by Battalion Chief Anne Sprute, Battalion Commander Lt. Col. K.C. Bolton and United Way of Pierce County President Rich Allen, among others.
