    Army Comprehensive Soldier Fitness is a $125 million program that seeks to make troops as psychologically fit as possible.

    But a group of psychologists says there’s no proof that the program — or similar resilience-building efforts in the other services — works.

    Re: Psychologists question Army resilience program

    In 2011, while at Graf in Germany, I spent countless hours on different resiliency training blocks. It continued on before I PCSed.

    Before I deployed with 4ID, I was paid $8.00 since I volunteered to take an extra block on a 90 minute test on my mental faculties.

    I have taken many psycho profile exams (e.g. NYPD) and I have realized that people are going to give answers that the "test" wants to hear.

    Sadly, some people purposely bolo the PDHRA so they could avoid a deployment or draw PTSD/disability pay in the future.

    These tools are far from foolproof.
