Fort Detrick's Family Advocacy Program helped raise awareness of domestic violence by hosting two information sessions dedicated to curbing abuse at the Community Activities Center Oct. 30, as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Sessions were split into a morning session presided over by U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Fort Detrick Commanding General Maj. Gen. Joseph Caravalho Jr., and an afternoon gathering presided over by U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick Commander Col. Steven P. Middlecamp. Both sessions included the reading of a signed proclamation affirming Fort Detrick's commitment to preventing abuse, an overview of FAP services, and a special presentation given by a spousal abuse survivor.
