Long-Term Rehab Center Opening at Fort Knox

new long-term rehabilitation center for soldiers at Fort Knox is celebrating a ribbon-cutting this week. The ceremony for the Warrior Transition Battalion Complex will be held on Wednesday afternoon at the post. The new center located near Ireland Army Community Hospital will provide a temporary home for wounded, ill and injured service members who need at least six months rehabilitative care.

The new complex will be memorialized in honor of Sergeant Maj. William D. Sumner, an infantryman and logistics leader whose Army career spanned three major wars from 1939-1969. Members of his family will be at the 1:30 p.m. ceremony. The complex is located on Spearhead Division Avenue on post.
