Family members and civilians are as much a part of the Total Force as our active duty and reservists. The Air Force Office of Integrated Resilience is dedicated to Optimizing Airmen Performance to increase readiness and lethality.  We will continue to collaborate across industry and academia to find and implement the best ways forward in understanding, assessing and maintaining all Airmen and their families. The goal can only be achieved by promoting dignity and respect, and fostering the fitness and performance of units, organizations, families and communities within the Total Force.
