WHO WE ARE
Fort Riley is located in the Flint Hills Region of Kansas. We are home to Soldiers and families of the 1st Infantry Division known as "The Big Red One" which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2017. There are approximately 15,000 active duty service members assigned to Fort Riley with more than 18,000 family members, 29,000 veterans and retirees and 5,600 civilian employees who live in the region and/or work at the post. The 1st Infantry Division as well as National Guard and Reserve units from several states use the modern training facilities at Fort Riley to gain skills necessary to defend our nation. Garrisons, also called an installation or post, are communities that provide many of the same types of services expected from any small town. Law enforcement, fire protection, sports & recreational facilities, religious activities, child & youth programs are just a small sample of the support and services we provide every day.

OPERATION VICTORY WELLNESS
The 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley has kicked-off "Operation Victory Wellness." Victory Wellness is a comprehensive, enduring operation to make EVERY Soldier, Department of the Army civilian, and family member on Fort Riley more resilient and stronger across the five dimensions of strength: physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and family. This campaign will employ an ongoing series of training events and activities designed to strengthen individuals and units and build trust and cohesion amongst leaders, Soldiers, and families. Wellness events will be scheduled throughout each month and provided the same resources as other military operations.
The first campaign event is an interactive discussion session between Fort Riley leaders and company-level command teams. These leaders are best positioned to affect change at the small unit level. By hearing their concerns and challenges, senior leaders can better provide resources and training to increase the resilience of Soldiers and units. Discussion topics focus on the five dimensions of strength: physical, spiritual, emotional, family, and social.
Watch for upcoming events to include Victory Wellness Time, Victory Foundational Days, and Victory Wellness Action Week. Victory Wellness Time will occur twice a month, providing unit leaders a designated time to conduct training based on a menu of available resources. Victory Foundational Days will occur monthly and are reserved entirely for resilience-related training and activities. Victory Wellness Action Week sets aside an entire week for units to execute a comprehensive program to improve individual resilience and overall unit cohesion. The first Victory Wellness Action Week begins in December.
Additionally, every 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley Soldier, from private to major general, will conduct a 30-minute Victory Wellness Check each year, a counseling session with a Military Family Life Counselor to enhance emotional wellness.
