PRESIDIO OF MONTEREY, Calif. -- The U.S. Army Soldier Show put on a high-energy 75-minute song-and-dance production inside the Presidio's Price Fitness Center gym Aug. 16.

The cast and crew of active-duty, Army Reserve and Army National Guard Soldiers are currently embarking on a four-month tour of installations across the nation, delivering pivotal Army messages through their show titled "Ready and Resilient."

The show used a wide variety of popular songs woven together to create a narrative touching upon issues that affect today's Soldiers and their families. Topics such as transitioning from civilian to Soldier, being deployed, sexual harassment, and achievement in athletics.

According to Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter, commanding general of Army Installation Management Command, "This year's production explores what it means to be ready and resilient in today's Army -- as a Soldier, spouse, family member, survivor, retiree and civilian. Readiness is the ability to accomplish assigned tasks through resilience, individual and collective training, and leadership. Resilience is the ability to face and cope with adversity, adapt to change, recover, learn and grow."

Among those in attendance; the Presidio was honored to have about a dozen Gold Star Family Members from Monterey County who were brought to the show through the coordination of the Army Community Services, Survivor Outreach Services Program.
