October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Together we are ONE VOICE against domestic violence. Our HONOR, our COURAGE, our COMMITMENT make a difference.3859
October is a time for the Navy and communities across the United States to think of the damage domestic violence causes to victims, children, extended family and friends, health care and law enforcement and the cost it forces us all to bear. It is a time to think about those that we care about who have been victims of domestic violence. It is a time to reflect on what we can do to prevent domestic violence in our community.
This year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Navy will focus on our values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Consider the Navy core values and how you apply them in your everyday life experiences.
