Resiliency is not a new concept. The idea that developing a person to be mentally, physically, spiritually and socially strong so they can adapt to stressful events in their lives is the basis of the Comprehensive Airman Fitness program. But what happens when even the strongest among us reaches their breaking point?
The Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) Program highlights the importance of reaching out for help and building resiliency to hundreds of Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers and Marines across Oahu during the 2019 AF Hosted Warrior CARE Event at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, Jan. 7-11. The event included an adaptive sports competition, as well as ambassador workshops and mentorship programs.
