Anti-drug Red Ribbon Week set for October

Date Posted: 2006-10-07

Red Ribbon Week, an annual week-long initiative to encourage America’s youth and teens to take a positive stand against drugs, will be celebrated October 23~31 on Okinawa.

The Marine Corps Community Services Substance Abuse Counseling Center is offering a number of programs to draw attention to the week, which advocates youth making a lifelong commitment to remaining drug free.

“100% Me—Drug Free” is this year’s theme, and many Okinawa organizations and individuals are lining up behind the program. A ceremony next Tuesday will see Lieutenant General Joseph Weber, Commanding General, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Brigadier General Mary Krusa-Dossin, Commanding General, Marine Corps Base, Brigadier General Harold Moulton, Commanding General, Kadena Air Base and 18th Wing, Captain R.D. Wilson, Commander, Naval Forces Okinawa, and Colonel K.S. Lundgren, Commander 10th Area Support Group at Torii Station, issuing a proclamation encouraging support for the week’s activities.

The ceremony, which promotes year-around support in protecting the community from dangers of alcohol and other drugs, will take place at Camp Foster’s Building 1 at 8am.

Radio listeners to Wave89 will be promoting the Red Ribbon Week with trivia contests, and SACC personnel will be on the air during the week to help out. Red Ribbon Week events information is available from SAC, 645-3009.
