R2 Resources

Readiness is the Army's top priority. R2's Strengthening Readiness and Resilience Campaign reminds our subordinate leaders that it is our duty and responsibility to maintain routines and build relationships with our Soldiers to foster a culture of trust so that Soldiers are motivated to seek our guidance. Doing so enhances our ability to recognize even the smallest changes in behavior (e.g., lack of motivation, withdrawal, etc.) that are a deviation from standards or out of character for the Soldier and pro-actively address any concerns. Leaders who model the right behaviors and reinforce the need to cultivate relationships positively influence personal and unit readiness. Strengthening Soldiers and enhancing personal readiness offers the greatest opportunity to increase unit cohesion and achieve positive outcomes.

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.
