What is Ready and Resilient?

Ready and Resilient (R2) empowers Army leaders to take action to achieve and sustain personal readiness and resilience.

Those who serve must foster an environment where individuals treat themselves and others with dignity and respect; are interveners instead of bystanders; and exemplify the Army Values.

Personal Readiness: Physical, psychological, social, spiritual and Family preparedness to achieve and sustain optimal performance in supporting the Army mission in environments of uncertainty and persistent danger.

Resilience: The ability to face and cope with adversity, adapt to change, recover, learn and grow from setbacks.
