The holidays may create stressors that are unique to this time of year. Major life challenges, such as marital problems, loneliness and mental health issues can make the holidays a time of unhappiness rather than one of enjoyment. Promoting Comprehensive Airmen Fitness (CAF) and ensuring a culture of wingmanship are fundamental concepts that are especially important during the holidays. Participating in activities that are related to CAF is one reason that the holiday season can be so memorable. If you or a wingman is in need of support, the Air Force has many helping agencies to utilize, such as Mental Health, Psychiatric Health, employee assistance programs, military & family life consultant and your local chapel.
