Comprehensive Airman Fitness

  • Published

Comprehensive Airman Fitness (CAF) is a new culture and a new way of thinking and doing that enables the force to become more resilient through awareness of two principles. First, when a person behaves positively in everyday situations, it shapes how he or she reacts when tough times hit. Secondly, health is more than physical fitness; it includes mental, social and spiritual fitness. CAF helps each of us in our overall readiness.

In the spirit of Comprehensive Airman Fitness, the 169th FW Chaplain Office will hold a 1-day offsite resiliency course using the Ultimate Spirituality: Resiliency and Relationships (R & R) curriculum. This new course has been approved by NGB to be held at all ANG units. Please take advantage of this opportunity to explore resiliency in a relaxed setting. (THIS COURSE WILL NOT BE OFFERED AGAIN UNTIL 2014).

Course Description: A pluralistic spiritual course designed to engage participants of diverse backgrounds in the exploration of their most meaningful spiritual values and beliefs, and to provide skills for accessing and using those values/beliefs in a more resilient management of their emotions, perspective and meaning of life events, decisions and priorities, and in their interactions and relationships with others.

When: Friday, 22 February 2013 (Training will last from 0730-1630)

Where: McCrady Training Center, 5405 Leesburg Road, Eastover, SC 29044
(Sessions held in the SCANA Conference Center next to Varn Lake)
