As part of ongoing efforts to raise awareness and understanding of the Army's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program, Fort Eustis will host a Resiliency Fair Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Fort Eustis Club.

"With a military at war for nine years, the Army is making an investment in the readiness of the force and quality of life for Soldiers, civilian employees and family members through Comprehensive Soldier Fitness," said Col. Glenn Grothe, 733d Mission Support Group and Army Support Activity commander, in a recent letter to the Fort Eustis community about the fair." This program places the same emphasis on psychological, emotional and spiritual strength that has previously been given to physical strength. CSF marks a new era for the Army by equipping and training Soldiers, civilian employees and family members to maximize their potential and face the physical and psychological challenges of sustained operations."

Donna Cloy and Shirley Strong from Army Community Service and other Fort Eustis unit Master Resilience trainers will provide presentations explaining what CSF is, what's needed to provide training, available resources and more. After the presentations, various installation services, such as fitness experts, health professionals and chaplains, will have booths to provide information on how to implement CSF programs.

Childcare will be available, and a special lunch rate of $6 at the club will be offered to attendees.
