Autism walk brings out supportive families

Service members and families hold colorful signs that read "1 in 88" prior to the beginning of an Autism Awareness Walk April 2 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. The 593rd Sustainment Brigade held an Autism Awareness Walk at the brigade’s headquarters to raise awareness about the disorder and provide information to families about where they can find support here at JBLM. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 88 children in the U.S. have been identified as having an autism spectrum disorder.
