What is “Resilience”?
Resilience is the ability to grow and thrive in the face of challenges and bounce back from adversity.
What does “RESILIENCE” mean to the Wisconsin Army National Guard (WIARNG)?
The Wisconsin Army National Guard is committed to helping Soldiers and their Families be positive contributing members of their units and communities. The Army National Guard Resilience Program teaches Soldiers and families valuable skills to navigate the up & down, twists & turns of life on this planet.

The Resiliency programs are built on the five pillars of Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness: Family, Physical, Social, Spiritual & Emotional Fitness.
