A Soldier from 526th Engineer Company, 92nd Engineers Battalion, hides behind a tree in a paintball battle during Warrior Adventure Quest at Holbrook Pond Recreation Area and Campground earlier this year.

FORT STEWART, Ga. - The Warrior Adventure Program is an Army-wide program, offered to Soldiers returning from deployment. It is an avenue that helps Soldiers cope with different kinds of issues that may have been developed while deployed.

“It’s designed to help Soldiers deal with stress, anxiety and adrenaline issues,” said Chris Dent, recreation delivery coordinator for Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. “The program shows them safe alternatives. Here at Fort Stewart, we utilize paintball, mountain biking, kayaking and low-ropes team building.”

Initially, WAQ was scheduled until the month of October. Due to the program’s success, WAQ is extended to the month of December.
