Spirituality is recognized as a key component to resiliency. Deepening your spirituality will make you stronger and it will make you a better soldier, sailor, airman, or marine. It doesn’t hurt to pause and look at the big picture and ask: What’s important in my life? What am I looking for? Where does God fit into my military profession and my life? Find out how other military young adults answer these questions at this daylong retreat for service members. Learn how faith plays a role in their journeys and makes them stronger, and take the time to reflect on your own path and exercise your spirit.
