Deployments, permanent change of station moves, extended work hours; these are all issues that can cause stress levels to rise within a military family. Such problems can worsen over time and eventually lead to domestic abuse. This month, we bring awareness to domestic violence. Remember, if tensions can rise to levels, there are ways to be prepared. Marines stationed in Iwakuni, Japan held a instructive demonstration for such an incidence.
However, it should never get to this point. Domestic abuse hurts children, families, command and community. Let’s take a stand to stop the violence.
