Resiliency training, according to Stacy Delgado, a master resiliency trainer with Fort Polk’s Army Community Service, benefits military children because it builds the resiliency to overcome adversity. “We are trying to give these kids the same skills that their Soldier and other Family members are learning so that everyone is on the same page when it comes to communication. The hope is that it will help the whole Family function positively,” said Delgado.
