KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea --
The 8th Fighter Wing hosted numerous resiliency-focused events for the Resilience Tactical Pause capstone with a Sept. 13.
The first event, a forum, featured Col. Tad Clark, 8th FW commander, and a small group of Airmen who took the opportunity to share their stories on hardship and resiliency.
“If you get after resiliency, it has to be genuine, sincere and heartfelt,” said Clark. “We need to take time to take care of each other and love one another as a family. We don’t want to just check a box with a one-day event. We are going to be the wing that takes care of one another and gets the mission done in the process.”
Following the forum, individuals received the chance to learn about various organizations and social groups around base at the Airmen 4 Airmen Club Fair. The fair featured 22 different base organizations including a tabletop gaming group, a book club, dog sanctuary volunteers and a Republic of Korea Air Force language exchange program.
Following the capstone of the RTP, the 8th FW will continue to look for ways to give back to Airmen, boost morale and maintain an open dialog about resiliency.
