The CAF week focused on the resiliency domain of mental strength, with suicide awareness being the main topic of conversation.
A guest speaker was brought in to talk about the importance of the topic. The speaker, Dennis Gillan, lost two brothers to suicide 11 years apart.
He addressed Airmen and left them with a quote, "Life is going to throw some things at you that will absolutely kick you in the gut, but you will not be judged by the amount of times you get knocked down, but by the amount of times you get up."
