The "My Passport to Resilience" program was established in December 2012 to increase Seymour Johnson AFB military and family familiarity with the various helping agencies available on base. This program is incentive-based and offers 'time off' for different levels of completion.
So far, the program has proven effective as warriors are voluntarily attending classes and taking a proactive approach to being more resilient. The wing will continue to use this program under the following guidelines:
Military members will receive a stamp for each helping agency class they attend. If a spouse attends with the military member, the member will receive an additional stamp.
