Marines are America’s expeditionary force in readiness—not just in battle, but every day. We never leave a Marine behind. If you see a fellow Marine who needs help, step up and step in.
That’s the latest message from the Commandant and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, posted to Facebook and Twitter on 14 March 2016 and also shown below. “One of my goals as your Commandant,” General Neller says in the video, “is to see every Marine be successful. So my challenge to you -- not just today, but every day -- is to look around and see who might be struggling. Ask them, ‘how can I help?’” By being attentive and stepping in, Marines can help prevent destructive and criminal conduct, such as sexual assault, alcohol misuse, and suicide.

This April the Department of Defense will mark its 12th annual observance of SAAPM with the ongoing theme “Eliminate Sexual Assault: Know Your Part. Do Your Part.”
People who are sexually assaulted are never alone – no matter when or where assistance is needed. Marines and their families have immediate access to resources and referrals by calling their installation’s 24/7 Sexual Assault Support Line.
Have you heard about “Protect What You’ve Earned” yet? If so, you are probably wondering what this phrase means.
