  • Directorates collaborate, brings DUI to the forefront
Kaytrina Curtis
Fort Stewart Public Affairs
November is Drunk and Drugged
Driving Prevention Month, and the
Directorate of Emergency Services,
Army Substance Abuse Program, Child
Youth and School Services, and the
Consolidated Public Affairs Office
teamed up Nov. 8 to shoot a public
service announcement which highlights
some of the costs associated
with drinking under the influence and
the zero tolerance policy.
The PSA, a brain-child of Chris
Maurer, a crime analyst with DES, consists
of children of Soldiers, the DES
Commander, Lt. Col. Frances Fullard
along with DES Command Sgt. Major
Albert Nelson Jr., military police officers
and countless others. The PSA
focuses on the child-like decisions that
a Soldier might make when drinking
and the punishment that can result
after a DUI. With the holiday season
right around the corner, many say it is
timely.
“This PSA is a great tool to show how
irresponsible behavior can lead to
poor decision making,” ASAP Risk
Reduction Program Coordinator
Shirley Stephens said. “As Soldiers
there are plenty of available prevention
education, training and treatment
services. As a friend you can be a designated
driver or just take the keys.”
Georgia Southern University junior,
Nadine-Tamara Benjamin, volunteers
with PAO and enthusiastically helped
behind the scenes with the PSA shoot.
Benjamin said drunk driving is a childlike
behavior and should be avoided.
“It was important for children as
well as adults to realize the impact of
drunk driving,” Benjamin said. “Not
only is a drunk drivers life changed,
but also can change the life of others.”
“Driving under the influence is a
year-round problem,” Lt. Col. Fullard
said. “However, during the holiday
season we see an increase in DUIs due
to the poor choices people make in
drinking and then getting behind the
wheel of a vehicle. That decision can
cost the life of the driver or the life of
an innocent person that could be your
spouse, child, or parent.”
Lieutenant Colonel Fullard added
that as this is a community problem
and it takes a partnership between law
enforcement and the community to
fix it. “Make the right decision. Don’t
drink and drive and don’t let your
friends drink and drive,” she said.
In keeping with the Marne Pride
Pledge, Soldiers take a pledge to make
the right decisions when it comes to
driving, albeit drunk, drugged or
buzzed. The promise every Third
Infantry Division and Fort Stewart-
Hunter Army Airfield Garrison Soldiers
make not only affects one, it has the
potential to affect all. The PSA, which
features a special message from
Stewart-Hunter Garrison Commander,
Col. Kevin Gregory and Command Sgt.
Maj. Louis Felicioni, is tentatively
scheduled to be released Nov. 19.
Stephens said help is available
through ASAP as well as other channels.
The numbers for assistance are:
Prevention Education: 912-767-1319;
Treatment: 912-767-5265.
