The U.S. Military

Our university is centered in one of the most concentrated military corridors in the nation. ECU has strong relationships with the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Battalion East and the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, the Warrior Transition Unit, Womack Army Medical Center, and U.S. Army Special Operations Command Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. In addition, a regional VA medical center is under construction in Greenville. Operation Reentry researchers have close ties with the Durham and Fayetteville VA Medical Centers, working with their rural outpatient networks. In addition, we have relationships with the North Carolina National Guard, and the Citizen Soldier Support Program for Guard and Reserve units.

At the federal level, Operation Reentry is building partnerships with the U.S. Army Research and Materiel Command, Fort Detrick, Md., the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in Falls Church, VA., the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center in Bethesda, ND and the Defense Centers of Excellence in Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury in Washington DC.
