On this week's show, we follow up on a topic we covered several months ago: Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness, the Army's effort to build resilience among its soldiers, civilian employees and their family members.

Now, the Army is rolling out a technology platform that it hopes will take that comprehensive resilience effort further: Army Fit. It's designed to let each of those Army populations assess their own resilience along five different dimensions of strength, and only one of those dimensions is physical. Our guest on this week's show is Lt. Col. Daniel Johnston, an Army physician and the program manager for Army Fit.
