As holidays approach and we enter the winter season, it is exceptionally important that we, Soldiers and Veterans, support one another in times of need. Please check on your fellow Soldiers, regardless of rank. See how they are doing. Ask them if they are okay. Be there for those that need someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on. Be sensitive and aware of those that have suffered loss, suffer from trauma, and may feel alone. Be prepared to support; offer kindness, empathy, and a supportive word; and provide awareness of resources available to those in need. Thank you and best wishes from the leadership of Army University Press.
