BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Combined coalition training among members of NATO has been occurring for years to help develop professionally trained leaders and strengthen continuing partnerships among nations, whether in a field or classroom environment.
Sgt. 1st Class Warren Beasley, 10th Sustainment Brigade master resilience trainer, conducted portions of master resilience training for soldiers of the Republic of Korea Army provincial reconstruction team here earlier this month.
Master resilience training is becoming a well-known term among Soldiers assigned to 10th Sustainment Brigade. Now, thanks mostly in part to Beasley’s initiative,
the term is known among the ranks of some RoK Army soldiers deployed here.
Task Force Ashena Command Sgt. Maj. Jong Joon Choi, senior enlisted leader for the RoK Army PRT, said he attended one of Beasley’s MRT classes Feb. 15, and he requested that his soldiers be afforded an opportunity to learn the same skills.
Beasley conducted classes covering the first three skills of MRT on three separate occasions.
With the assistance of an interpreter, Beasley was able to effectively train 56 RoK Army PRT soldiers in portions of the MRT course.
The MRT skills taught were “Hunt the Good Stuff,” “Activating Events, Thoughts and Consequences” and “Avoiding Thinking Traps.”
“The Korean soldiers were very receptive, and (they) received the skills in a professional and personal manner,” Beasley said. “They were very pleased to receive the training.”
The training was the same class 10th Sustainment Soldiers received a few weeks earlier. The training was conducted through lecture, demonstrations, video and class discussions. It was then translated by the interpreter for the class to comprehend.
“Soldiers enjoyed the class and participated in the exercises enthusiastically,” Beasley said.
Questions were asked by Soldiers, officers and noncommissioned officers to better grasp the ideals of MRT.
“MRT helps U.S. and RoK Army PRT Soldiers in personal and professional aspects of life, together accomplishing the mission,” Beasley noted.
 At the end of the class, the RoK Army PRT soldiers took pictures and presented a positive attitude about the training.
