Army Space Soldiers from the 1st Space Brigade and U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Forces Strategic Command operations participated in the U.S. Army-wide Suicide Stand Down Day activities at the Auditorium on base. Brig. Gen. Timothy Coffin, deputy commanding general for operations, addressed Soldiers and Department of Army civilians saying, "Today is an effort -- one to build resilience within our formations and to give us individual tools as we go through the difficulties that life throws in our paths." The first part of the day covered suicide prevention training provided by chaplains from the 1st Space Brigade followed by a 'Terrain Walk' for Staff and unit leaders providing resources available in the local area. The final portion of the day was spent on Masters Resiliency Training.
