Got GAT?

And no, I’m not talking about some terrible foot disease, I’m talking about the Global Assessment Tool, a component of Comprehensive Soldier Fitness. And Soldiers, take heed – you have less than a month to complete the assessment!

Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. George W. Casey, Jr. visited Fort Jackson, S.C., today, and connecting with Soldiers who are experiencing the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program first-hand was a key part of his visit. Gen. Casey visited the new Master Resilience Training School. The MRT school represents one of the four components of the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program (Global Assessment Tool, self- guided training modules, master resilience trainers and resilience training at all Army leadership schools). While visiting, Gen. Casey noted that he considers Fort Jackson to be a center of excellence for Master Resiliency Training.



Comprehensive Soldier Fitness is more than a program – it’s a key step in ensuring our Soldiers (and their family members) take steps to take care of their emotional fitness. Have you taken the GAT yet? Go to and do it today!
