Personal Readiness is Key to Mission Readiness

Readiness is the Army's top priority, and resilience is an important part of readiness. Strengthening Soldiers and enhancing resilience offers the greatest opportunity to increase unit cohesion and achieve positive outcomes. Summer is often a time that we look forward to with equal parts excitement and apprehension as we plan for new activities like taking leave for a family vacation or to deal with life events such as managing a PCS move. These breaks from our typical routines can not only lead to a loss of connection with battle buddies, but also inadvertently affect others around us (e.g., unit, family, co-workers). R2's Strengthening Resilience and Readiness Communications Campaign reminds everyone to be proactive in building protective factors (see page 6) and engaging with others. You can find tips and resources [LINK] for use year-round.

What is Ready and Resilient?

Ready and Resilient (R2) is the Army's strategy for strengthening individual and unit Personal Readiness and fostering a culture of trust.

R2 provides training and resources to the Army Family to enhance resilience and optimize performance. R2 reinforces the Army Values, beliefs and attitudes, and educates members of the Army team about the importance of building connections with each other, taking care of one another, and being there to support fellow Soldiers.

Every Soldier is a valued member of the Army team and is critical to readiness and mission accomplishment. Soldiers who achieve and sustain personal readiness and resilience make ready and resilient units and teams. Ready and resilient units and teams make a ready and resilient Army.
