MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Airmen from Moody Air Force Base participated in a Comprehensive Airman Fitness (CAF) Day, September 28, 2018.

A CAF Day focuses on strengthening the four pillars of Comprehensive Airmen Fitness: physical, social, spiritual and mental.

Col. Jennifer Short, 23d Wing Commander, said the intent of the CAF Day was for Team Moody to spend a day focusing on the mental and social domains after a very busy year of successful operations and to make sure all Airmen went into the holiday season knowing they aren’t alone.

“With the successful closeout of the fiscal year flying hour program, we were able to take advantage of this down day and give Airmen the time to focus on the most valuable asset—our people,” continued Short. “Giving time back to the Airmen is something we need to do as leaders and this is possible because our Airmen work hard every day to get the mission done.”

Airmen spent the day participating in a variety of events to include a Club Interests Activities display, Individual Resilience Skills Training (ISRT), unveiling a Green Dot commitment board, squadron BBQs and physical training sessions and briefings centered on current intelligence, safety, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Treatment (ADAPT) and suicide prevention.

Although the activities varied throughout the day, the common theme of resiliency being a lifestyle, not a buzzword, was found in the events.

“Resiliency is the ability to get back up from those things that knock you down,” summarized Tech. Sgt. Chadd Smith, ISRT briefer. “Bad things are going to happen in life, but you have to touch what you can impact and let go of the rest.”
