It always helps to have the encouragement of others, especially when taking on a task for the first time. In this case, the assignment is a four-year stint in the U.S. Army, and the individual heading for boot camp is a high school graduate from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. The group providing the support includes staff members from the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity, Fort Detrick, Maryland, whose daily mission is to develop and deliver quality medical capabilities to protect, treat and sustain the health of Service Members worldwide.

Fort Detrick hosted several events in the month of April focused on eliminating sexual harassment and assault during Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

Although sexual assault awareness and prevention is a year-round effort, SAAPM is a time to focus efforts on building awareness through outreach and educational opportunities that impact our community, with these efforts making prevention something that should take place each and every day.
