Across the nation and within the Department of Defense, October is designated as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The theme at Moody Air Force Base is “There’s NO Excuse for Intimate Partner Abuse.”
The term "intimate partner abuse" describes abuse by a current or former intimate partner. Partner abuse occurs in heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender intimate relationships. Partners can be dating, married, separated, or divorced. The abuse can occur regardless of military rank, religion, or racial, ethnic, cultural, disability and age groups.
