Our Mission Support The Citizen And Soldiers
Guard Your Health wear at least two caps: they are Citizens and Soldiers. This creates unique challenges – from balancing civilian jobs and family activities with monthly drill weekends, to mobilizing and deploying outside base support systems.
Guard Your Health routinely do it all with limited access to Army facilities and programs. Our goal is to give Guard Your Health the information, motivation and support to overcome these challenges and make healthy decisions for themselves, their families and their units.
The health-focused mission involves more than passing the Army Physical Fitness Test. It’s about taking care of one’s mind, body and spirit. It’s about keeping fit and ready to answer the call at home and abroad. And it’s about feeling good – now and into the future.
