    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, California - U.S. Marine Brig. Gen. Dan Conley, the commanding general of Marine Corps Installations West, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, released a proclamation letter Sept. 30 declaring October Domestic Violence Prevention Month for base.

    Survivors of domestic violence often suffer physical, mental, and or emotional health problems for the rest of their lives. It is the duty of service members and other authorized base personnel to ensure nobody on the installation is harmed by domestic violence.

    “Domestic violence, perpetrated in any form, which includes sexual, emotional/psychological, physical, financial, and neglect, is not keeping with our core values of honor, courage, and commitment,” stated Conley in his proclamation. “Prevention efforts that focus on developing and maintaining healthy relationships require community involvement and action.”

    This year’s focus is raising awareness for technology-facilitated abuse. Technology-facilitated abuse is the use of technologies such as texting and or posting on social media to bully, harass, stalk or intimidate a partner.

    Camp Pendleton offers domestic violence resources for those who live and work on the installation, like the Family Advocacy Program.

    “Our goal is to prevent, intervene and treat domestic violence and child abuse,” said Lacy Lake-Robinson, a prevention education specialist for the Family Advocacy Program. “Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, ethnicity or rank.”

    For more information or support, contact the Family Advocacy Program at (760) 725-9051. There are also multiple non-military support options, such as the National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233), and counseling at any behavioral health facility is also available for military members and their families.
