Lt. Gen. Michael D. Lundy hosted a Proclamation Signing ceremony April 1 to kick off CAC and Fort Leavenworth's Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, or SAAPM. "An integral responsibility of commanders is to set the conditions that enforce Army standards to prevent and report sexual offenses when they occur. I expect leaders and Soldiers at all levels to be involved in the prevention of and elimination of sexual assault in our ranks," Lundy said. Lt. Gen. Lundy's comments resonate with this year's SAAPM theme of "I Ask," which sends the message that asking for consent is a normal and necessary part of interactions that helps to prevent sexual assaults from happening in the first place. For people to simply say, "I Ask" shows an understanding of the most basic communication step in avoiding sexual assaults: obtaining consent. While the focus of SAAPM is always on victims and awareness, this year's theme endeavors to prevent assaults and build on the core Army Value of respect.
