After failing a recently implemented mandatory Army-wide “Spiritual Fitness” test, soldiers are given the following message on their computer screens:

“Spiritual fitness is an area of possible difficulty for you. You may lack a sense of meaning and purpose in
your life. At times, it is hard for you to make sense of what is happening to you and others around you. You
may not feel connected to something larger than yourself. You may question your beliefs, principles, and
values. Nevertheless, who you are and what you do matter. There are things to do to provide more meaning
and purpose in your life. Improving your spiritual fitness should be an important goal. Change is possible,
and the relevant self-development training modules will be helpful. If you need further help, please do not hesitate to seek out help from the people you care about and trust — strong people always do. Be patient in
your development as it will take time to improve in this area. Still, persistence is key and you will improve
here if you make this area a priority.”
