4/13/2015 - OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea  -- Team Osan kicked off their 51 Days of Resiliency campaign with an installation-wide formation followed by a fun run and family festivities April 10 at Osan Air Base.

The campaign, designed to encourage the honing of mental, social, spiritual and physical resilience, will charge through May 31. 

Throughout this expansive and unprecedented program, Team Osan is set to stampede to the front with almost two months of daily activities and offered programs in an effort to foster resiliency skills across all members.

"People are the greatest strength of any team and it is even more so at Team Osan," said Col. Brian Carr, 51st FW vice commander. "Guarding the freedom of 51 million people necessitates a strong operations tempo with our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, civilians, and families experiencing full and rewarding days. Although extremely fulfilling, you must also take time for regular maintenance."

The intent of this campaign is to make everyone aware of the base's Community Action Program which focuses on reducing alcohol related incidents, improving physical fitness, and emphasizing the opportunities and benefits of volunteering.

The 51st FW CAP is a useful tool helping enable all members of Team Osan to make sound choices.

"We want to highlight all the great organizations that are here to help and care for us by pulling out all the stops to make sure everyone knows about all the programs, classes, events and services offered by our helping agencies," said Carr.

"My husband and our children just recently moved here," said Aimee Johnson. "We are excited to see what activities are available over the next few weeks."

There are many military focus areas in the month of April including, Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, Month of the Military Child, Alcohol Awareness Month, National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Mental Health Month.

Yet, as the Mustangs yet again lead the charge in these areas, they're encouraged to strengthen their resolve and resiliency at even greater rates in the upcoming 51 days, ensuring that the base, and team, remain a pillar of excellence in the Republic of Korea, and Air Force.
