      I was just told I was approved to go into a WTU to start the MEB process. The only 2 options are FT Hood or at FT Polk. I am currntly station in Arkansas. I am an Active duty CPT with 24 years of Active Sevice and I really want to focus on transitioning out of the Army while getting my medical needs taking care of. Which WTU is a better fit with resource and less headaches?
      Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
