Some things never change. Military Families have always helped each other succeed. Family preparedness, self-reliance and resilience continue to be important to mission readiness. These key competencies help increase the Soldier’s confidence that their Family can manage their lives successfully regardless of the mission, which in turn helps the Soldier focus on that mission. Moreover, AFTB continues to empower individuals to maximize their personal growth and professional development through specialized training, as well as transform the Army community into a resilient and strong foundation meeting today’s mission.
