Music artists performing at the 'What Makes You Strong' concert series include Anthony Hamilton, Drumma Boy and Kinky. The Army has also enlisted support from U.S. Olympians, as well as influential community and business leaders, to join senior Army officers for the leadership seminars.

The concerts and leadership series will be supported with the Army Strength in Action Zone, featuring state of the art technology with opportunities for participants to interact with Army simulators and Soldiers. Attendees will experience the Strength to Soar Aviation Element flight simulator and the Strong Stage Confidence Course in a physical fitness challenge that will enable participants to test their mental and physical strength. The Strength in Action Zone gives participants a unique experience where they are able to see themselves react to very specific scenarios and interact with an Army soldier, providing an authentic perspective that can't be found elsewhere. 

The U.S. Army is one of the nation's largest providers of college scholarships and grants more than $270 million annually in merit-based ROTC scholarships for students to complete their college education. The Army offers valuable career and education opportunities as well as high-tech and leadership training for young adults.
