JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel Dailey and Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Daniel Allyn visited JBLM today to learn how JBLM service members of all ranks view the Army’s Ready and Resilience (R2C) well-being campaign.
JBLM was the first of four stops on military installations around the country for Dailey and Allyn, allowing them to speak directly to Soldiers about how the Army helps service members cope with the stressors of military life and provides resources to assist Soldiers and their families. The leaders held focus groups behind closed doors to help foster open discussions. Dailey and Allyn will take the feedback and comments from Soldiers back to the Pentagon, where they will make recommendations on how the R2C campaign can most effectively support the force.
The Army unveiled its Ready and Resilience Campaign as a tool to teach Soldiers and family members skills to cope with stressors and deal with experiences that could potentially lead to depression, post-traumatic stress and suicide. A key component of the campaign is the Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness program, which takes a holistic approach to fitness and includes physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness.
Dailey is the senior enlisted advisor to the Army Chief of Staff, and the most senior enlisted member of Army. Allyn serves as the number two to the CSA.
