FORWARD OPERATING BASE MAREZ, MOSUL, Iraq - An open invitation 4-mile run in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month was held by the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division Equal Opportunity Team April 24 on Forward Operating Base Marez in Iraq.

The goal of Sexual Assault Awareness Month is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
