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.
1st Lt. Jacob Ridings stands in front of a Denim Day display that was set up for a Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign aboard Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, May 1. Denim Day began nearly 20 years ago after a rapist’s conviction was overturned by the Italian Supreme Court because the justices felt that since the young woman was wearing tight jeans, she must have assisted the rapist in removing them. The next day, the women in Italian Parliament came to work wearing denim, and now annually one Wednesday in April is honored as Denim Day. This was one of several awareness displays set up around Marine Wing Support Detachment 273. Ridings is a SAPR advocate with MWSD-273. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Ashley Phillips)

Sascha’ralayi Edwards stand in front of a clothesline display for Sexual Assault Awareness Month aboard Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, May 1. These Marines were the lead coordinators for Marine Wing Support Detachment 273’s awareness campaign. Throughout the month, they gave Marines opportunities to volunteer to create awareness displays such as the clothesline. They got to creatively show their support as well as have conversations about sexual assault and the resources available to them. Ridings and Callaway are MWSD-273’s SAPR advocates.

This year’s Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month theme was “Protecting our people, protects our mission.” Marine Wing Support Detachment 273 set up several displays around the unit and gave Marines the opportunity to get involved with creating the displays. “I think here at the detachment SAAPM went really well,” said Maj. Patrick W. Junick, the commanding officer of MWSD-273. “It’s good that a unit this small can have such a good awareness campaign. Our victim advocates do well at their job and make our Marines feel comfortable and educated. It goes back to adherence to the standards. Moving forward, I want our Marines to know, no means no and your clothing does not indicate consent. Do the right thing for the right reasons.” (U.S. Marine Corps graphic by Kevin Thatcher)
