MCLB kicks off Domestic Violence Awareness Month

MCLB held their kick off for Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a ceremony, run, and a motorcycle ride.  More than 30 law enforcement officers, civilians and Marines participated in the ride.

This is the fifth year for the celebration and second for the Domestic Violence Awareness Motorcycle ride.

They hope the day's events spread enough awareness that will end the cycle of domestic violence. Also they provided access to help for any civilian or Marine who has gone through it.

"You have to concentrate on your mission first. Then your private life comes second. When abuse happens it affects your private life in a major way," said Master Gunnery Sergeant Carlotta Moore.

"It doesn't just affect one person. It affects all of us that why we all need to get involve and stop this vicious cycle,"  said Jodi Smith, an Administrative Assistant for Marine and Family Services.

 This event begins a kick off for MCLB's Domestic Violence awareness month at the base.
