The Army has rolled out an innovative new training program aimed at all Initial Entry Training Soldiers.
The campaign theme, "Make the Right Choice! Act to Prevent Domestic Abuse!" focuses on the power of the "bystander" in preventing and ending domestic abuse.
In an effort to bring Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month to everyone's attention, the annual opening ceremony was held at Fort Sam Houston at Army Community Services.
Domestic violence affects men and women, adults and children, civilians and Soldiers alike.
Courted and captivated, a young Cecil County girl, caught up in a whirlwind relationship, married an Army Soldier who seemed to be everything she wanted. Not all Soldiers, however, embrace the Army values, and before long, a fairy-tale existence gave way to a brutal reality.
