Members of the Oregon Army National Guard in front of the Oregon Military Academy in Monmouth, Ore., March 16, after graduating from the Resilience Training Assistant Course. The two-day course was taught by Master Resiliency Trainers from the Soldier and Family Support Division of the Army National Guard, March 14-16. The course—the first of its kind anywhere in the nation—is sanctioned by the National Guard Bureau, and strives to increase awareness about Army resiliency. Oregon was the first to request, and receive, the training. A film documentary crew from Portland State University, and members of the French Public Media were on hand to cover the training event; the latter hopes to showcase how Army resiliency works in the United States in order to assist soldiers in the European Union.
