BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - That unit is known as the Warrior Transition Brigade and has been operating for more than a year.

It was established after reports of bad living conditions and bureaucratic snarls
experienced by soldiers who were outpatients at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center in Washington D.C.

Lt. Col. Michael Bell is a 43-year-old Tuscaloosa native and the
father of three children. He was assigned to the task of improving Walter Reed's outpatient services.

Bell says he wanted to get involved after seeing stories of
soldiers receiving inadequate outpatient treatment at Walter Reed.
