Using Communities to Further the True Meaning of Resiliency

Click on any phrase to play the video at that point.
[Adam Anicich] Hey guys, it's Adam, and some of the things that I've learned since starting this blog a few years ago was how resilient America's warfighters are. For all you veterans out there, all you active duty service members, all you reservists, guardsmen, you guys are incredible. I'm constantly impressed. Being in your shoes 5, 10 years ago, I thought I was resilient, but I didn't understand the true resiliency and the true level of dedication that each one of you has. You're incredibly, incredibly proficient at overcoming obstacles and finding new and innovative ways to adapt and overcome. I'm constantly impressed. The other thing that I've found in doing these blogs is how important the community is, whether that's your service member community, maybe your unit, maybe your peers on base, whether it's the veterans community and the caregivers community, whether it's your National Guard unit. Whatever community it is and whatever community you identify with, whether you classify yourself as a disabled veteran, whether you classify yourself as active duty Army, whatever classification you give to yourself, the importance of the community structure in both recovery and resiliency but also in kind of adapting and overcome to the latest challenges, the latest obstacles, sharing best practices, whether it's technology, whether it's different strategies and therapies, it's been really imperative to connect with a community. So I encourage you to think about that. Rest with some satisfaction knowing that I think you're very resilient, and also rest in some satisfaction knowing that there are communities out there who are able to help and have helped others. Thanks.

Service members, veterans, and their caregivers are incredibly resilient, says Adam, but learning to connect with whatever community you are in will only strengthen that resiliency.
