Sgt. Brittany Callaway stands in front of a Sexual Assault Awareness Month display at Marine Wing Support Detachment 273 aboard Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, May 1. Callaway had the Marines of the detachment show their support of SAAPM by decorating 998 dog tags to bring awareness to the 998 sexual assaults reported in FY17. “We talked about how those numbers have gone up, but because Marines are more aware and are more comfortable reporting it because of the education and the climate of their units,” Callaway said. “This was also a way to start a sometimes uncomfortable conversation.” Callaway is a sexual assault prevention and response advocate with MWSD-273. - Sgt.
