CARLISLE BARRACKS, Pa. - Sgt. Maj. Sharita Onugha visited the U.S. Army War College, Aug. 1-6, to explore the core resilience curriculum presented by the Army Resilience Directorate’s Senior Master Resilience Trainer-Performance Experts at the Nominative Spouse Seminar. Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael A. Grinston also stopped by. The senior leader spouses were asked to participate in small group discussions focused on expectations in their new roles, the Army's interaction with Congress, Total Force programs, opportunities, challenges and more. In return, the MRT-PEs provided a core curriculum that focused on resilience, character strengths, critical thinking, and communication, as well as new leadership ideas and techniques essential to making a positive impact on the Army mission, Army Families, and various facets of life. The spouses were especially excited to learn about ARD's capability portfolio with emphasis on the R2 Performance Centers and all that is available to our Soldiers, Families, and DA Civilians.
