ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany reminds everyone it only takes a minute to prevent child abuse.   That is the message for MCLB's annual Child Abuse Awareness  Ceremony.  

The base reminding everyone it only takes a minute to help a parent in need or a child at risk and it only takes a minute to call law enforcement for help.   

Colonel Donald J. Davis says Marines protect lives every day and that includes young children.   "Our children are our most precious resource for our future. Defending them and defending those who can't defend themselves is an important part of who we are," Col. Davis, MCLB Commanding Officer.  

"If we cannot step up our prevention efforts, we are going to ultimately have to deal with recovery. Prevention becomes one of our better way to attack the problem,"  said Dr. Ken Miller, Retired USMC Chaplain.  

April is National Military Child Month.
