Fort Riley Resiliency CampusNewly assigned Soldiers and Families will be happy to know that Fort Riley is a Resiliency Center of Excellence for the U.S. Army.
The centerpiece of our efforts to support the Warriors and their Families is the Resiliency Campus. This complex of facilities and services enables Fort Riley to more fully meet the needs of Soldiers and Families coping with multi-deployment stresses.
Resiliency will always be a 1st Infantry Division's goal and joins Force Generation, Sustainability and Community Cooperation, to make-up four areas through which the Division builds and maintains an aggressive force dedicated to the nation's defense.
The Resiliency concept allows forces to withstand the rigors of multiple deployments. It enables Soldiers to deploy, return, refresh and re-energize, and eventually prepare for further assignments. It gives Soldiers, Families, Programs and practitioners a wide variety of options for addressing stress related to multiple deployments.
The Resiliency Campus augments Fort Riley's existing ability to meet the resiliency goals, and addresses the stress-related challenges that Soldiers and their Families face due to multiple deployments, and will put the post on the forefront of U.S. Army efforts to maintain a potent national force for the nation's defense.
The Campus includes several core facilities: the Resiliency Learning Center, Physical Fitness Centers, Spiritual Fitness center and our new Mind Fitness center. In addition there are several supporting facilities and programs: Army Training Safety; Army Substance Abuse program, which will include suicide prevention; Warrior Readiness Clinic, the Warrior Zone, and the USO.
