HUNTER ARMY AIRFIELD, Ga. - Resiliency. Not everyone has it. That's why the Army Community Services of Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield put on a "Hunt the Good Stuff" concert in the HAAF PX parking lot featuring Audie Murphy's Mix Tape from the 3rd Infantry Division Band November 3.
Monica Battle, Army Community Services officer at HAAF said the reason for the concert is to promote resiliency and show Soldiers and Families the benefits of Master Resiliency Training and how to implement the techniques taught.
"We want to teach people how to bounce back and be healthy," Battle said. "This outreach is to show people how to Hunt the Good Stuff. We teach them to look at the positives in their life and focus on that as opposed to focusing on the negative things."
Participants were asked to write down a positive point about their day and put it on a post-it note and stick it to the stage.
One of the participants was Master Sgt. Ricardo Lopez, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Aviation Regiment, 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade.
"The atmosphere is great, the music is awesome, the band is taking every opportunity they can to talk about Hunt the Good Stuff and it's been an all-around great event," Lopez said. "Resiliency is something that everyone needs."
Angela Murphy is with Fort Stewart ACS, and she teaches survivor outreach service financial counseling. She is also a resiliency trainer.
"We teach people practical skills that they can take into the world and use when they are confronting a situation that they are having issues with," Murphy said. "They give you another avenue to try and deal with things that may be difficult for you."
Murphy said she has heard several success stories from program participants.
"I've had lots of people that have come back after the training and tell me how much it's made a difference in their lives. Little things like writing stuff down before you go to sleep at night gives you better sleep because you're thinking about something good so you have a more positive outlook when you wake up in the morning."
