I was beginning to out-process in the summer of 2020…with my retirement over 2 years away…yes, TWO YEARS AWAY and I’d never considered a personal wellness plan.
And I was late to the game. I never had a personal wellness plan. I thought crushing the physical fitness exam annually (I got a waiver for truly crushing it) was good enough.
I stumbled upon a handful of great resources available from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, and asked myself, “Why in the world am I just now getting something like this at the end of my career?“
Well, I decided our Health & Wellness is just as, if not more, important early in service to the Nation as it is afterwards.
So here’s the tool(s) I wished I’d been using from the earliest days in service.
Use these tools at every Physical Fitness assessment.
Use it quarterly to truly plan, and become ready.
To Your Liberty,
Jarrod H. Smith. Got Liberty? We’re bringing a fresh new perspective to service to the Nation. Jarrod brings 15 years of experience in Supply Chain and Logistics with the US Navy Submarine Force, Naval Aviation, and information technology systems and is applying skillsets as an Operational Planner to the most important weapons system: the Armed Forces Family. Fact of the matter is, we all “get out” one day. Intentional, informed planning, preparations, and workups from the earliest days in service are key, at every rank. Residing in the the greater Houston region with his wife and four kids, he’s preparing for Liberty beyond uniformed service in small town America. Their Liberty, and mine, is what he served for.
To Your Liberty, #HeckYeah
