Warriors Resilience Conference and “Brothers at War” Film

Building a formidable fighting force takes more than physical strength, it also takes psychological, spiritual and social resilience.

Learning how to build those strengths is the focus of the U.S. Defense Department’s fourth annual Warrior Resilience Conference titled “Restoring Readiness: Individual, Unit, Community and Family.”

The conference is being held March 29-30, Thursday and Friday, in Washington D.C. Yet, you can follow it live streaming online or follow comments on the conference through the Twitter hashtag: #WRC12.

Some comments from Twitter #WRC12:

  • I am impressed by both the questions and answers presented. Thank you.
  • Bureaucracy is the defined wedge between what’s needed and how long it will take.
  • @SEAC_JCS closes this morning’s senior enlisted panel with 3 key messages: Stay fit. Stay strong. Stay Resilient.
  • @DCoEPage Reaching out IS a sign of strength! Visit @realwarriors

The conference’s mission is to provide service members, units, families and communities with resilience-building techniques and tools that can be used “in garrison or in the field.”

Conference speakers include Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, and Army Brig. Gen. Bryan Gamble, deputy director of TRICARE Management Activity.

As part of the Warriors Resilience Conference 2012, the documentary “Brothers at War” will be shown Thursday night and some of the film’s participants will be available for a “meet and greet” after the showing. Here’s the official trailer:
