April is Sexual Assault Awareness Prevention Month, and on April 6 leaders and members of the Fort Detrick community gathered at the Fort Detrick Auditorium for the Fort Detrick 2015 Sexual Awareness Month Prevention Month kickoff event. SAAM’s purpose is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. The theme of the 2015 campaign is, “Eliminate Sexual Assault: Know Your Part. Do Your Part.”
Fort Detrick and U.S. Army leadership, alongside federal, state and local officials, broke ground on an estimated $35 million dollar project to install solar panels that will provide Fort Detrick with renewable energy on Wednesday, April 1.
