|Domestic violence should not happen to anybody. |
But it does.
And when it does, there is help.
Maybe you have lived with abuse,
maybe it happened just once;
maybe you work or live next to someone who is being abused right now.
Whoever you are whatever your connection to the
abuser or the abused, be aware and be prepared.
Domestic Violence is everybody's business.

Commanders and Supervisors
Domestic violence is a situation of which those in command must be constantly aware. Our Soldiers and Airmen need the support of their command structure in difficult and high-stress times. They must know that someone has their back.
Whether the abusive situation finds them as the abused or the abuser, our Guardsmen must feel safe. Not only must they feel they can report situations of domestic violence without repercussion, they must feel that the policies and procedures are in place to help and protect them.
Most importantly, command and supervisory personnel must be prepared to step in if they see anger issues within their ranks that might lead to a confrontational and/or abusive situation in the homes of their Guardsmen.
Know the policies. Know the procedures. Know what Domestic Violence is in all its forms. Take the time to be prepared.
