Abstract:

Soldier, family member, and Army resiliency is the cornerstone of future Army psychological health. Current resiliency is strong and growing stronger through the many programs and systems in the Army. Many of these were developed during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. This research paper reviews the existing programs and recommends continued support to the programs that have proven successful. In the end, the U.S. Army and its Soldiers and families deserve the best resiliency programs available, and the Army can continue to do this even in a financially challenged situation. The Army continues to move towards the social media environment with the Army OneSource program. Last, Army leaders must consider future resiliency programs as we rebuild informal resiliency programs if and when formal programs are discontinued with future fiscal constraints.
