The Army Resilience Round Up podcast is gaining momentum! In December we heard from Sgt. Maj. Sharita Onugha, a nominative senior enlisted adviser for the U.S. Army Resilience Directorate, in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff G-1, at the Pentagon. Onugha offered a detailed view of the Total Army Sponsorship Program and resources for Soldiers to increase their resilience.

She discussed policies, prevention and response in relation to resilience. In this inspiring and uplifting episode, Onugha shared the story of her childhood and her resilient upbringing.

Our January show featured retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, who started the year with a bang, which is nothing new for this fearless leader (also known as the “Ragin’ Cajun”). Honoré served as the 33rd commanding general of the U.S. First Army at Fort Gillem, Georgia. He is best known for serving as commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, which was responsible for coordinating military relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina. Honoré discussed his experience as a disaster management and climate preparedness leader and what it takes to lead through tough times.

As an Army veteran, he shared his beliefs about what it takes to produce Army-strong Soldiers and the ways that leaders can boost their troops’ resilience through effective support. Honoré revealed his core leadership principles that commanders and Soldiers alike should consider integrating into their careers. The Army Resilience Round Up offers resources to help Soldiers maintain resilience. Remember, you are resilient!
