State Resilience/Yellow Ribbon Coordinator




  • Resilience

    The ARNG Resilience Program aims to develop resilient Soldiers and Families through a wide array of resourced, accessible and effective programs built upon the five pillars of Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness: Emotional, Family, Physical, Social, and Spiritual Fitness.


    Per AR 350-53, all Soldiers are required to receive training on the mandatory resilience skills annually.  For ARNG Soldiers, CSF2 has approved an exception to policy that allows ARNG Soldiers to complete this requirement in twenty-four months.


    All 12 mandatory skills will populate in DTMS after the key word RESILIENCE is typed in the task name box.


    Executive Resilience and Performance     Course is designed to train Army Leaders (Company Commanders/First Sergeants and above).


    Deployment Cycle Resilience Training includes mandatory Pre/Post Deployment Resilience training for Soldiers and optional training for Spouses.

  • Yellow Ribbon

    The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program connects Guard and Reserve Service members, their families and loved ones with local resources before, during, and after deployments, especially during the reintegration phase that continues well-beyond the Service members return home.


    Commanders and leaders play a critical role in ensuring that National Guard and Reserve Service members and their families attend Yellow Ribbon Events where they can access information on healthcare, education, employment, and financial and legal benefits.


    Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is a joint-Service effort led by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs and administered by the Office for Reintegration Programs (ORP). Congress directed the Secretary of Defense to establish YRRP in 2008 in Section 582 of Public Law (PL) 110-181 in direct response to the Nation’s recognition of the unique challenges facing the Reserve Component (RC) community.
