NAD Wellness

The health and well-being of our USACE Family is vital to ensuring mission success. This includes physical, emotional, social, spiritual and family health. These are the cornerstones of Ready and Resilient (R2), the Army's strategy for strengthening individual and unit personal readiness and fostering a culture of trust. R2 provides training and resources to the Army Family to enhance resilience and optimize performance. R2 reinforces the Army Values, beliefs and attitudes, and educates members of the Army team about the importance of building connections with each other, taking care of one another, and being there to support fellow Soldiers.
