Dear Friend and Participant of the ARMOR Project: 

Thank you for making the ARMOR Project a success. As a participant, you have played a central role in advancing our understanding of what it means for a soldier to experience the challenges of basic training. With your generous help and commitment, the ARMOR Project is working to generate new discoveries about warriors' resilience to promote the health and well-being of all military service members and veterans. 

To demonstrate our thanks for your participation in the study, we have created this new ARMOR website. Here you will find information about the study, its history and beginning with the ongoing Readiness and Resilience in National Guard Soldiers (RINGS) study, and scientific milestones. 

In the future, we plan to use this website as a forum to update you on major findings from the study and share other information related to the ARMOR Project. We hope that you will visit the ARMOR website often, and we welcome suggestions for additions and improvement.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Best Wishes,

Melissa Polusny, PhD, ARMOR Project Lead
