Fort Irwin and National Training Center Commanding General Brig. Gen. Robert "Abe" Abrams signs a proclamation Oct. 14 that declared Oct. 26-30 as Red Ribbon Week on Fort Irwin. The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people and communities. The display of red ribbons is a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug-free America . Fort Irwin's Red Ribbon objective is to mobilize, educate, motivate and unite the people of this installation to achieve a drug-free community. The success of the campaign will be measured by the overall reduction of the drug positive rate among Soldiers and the reduction of teen and pre-teen use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
