  • Seat belts: a disciplined choice

    Jun 9, 2013

    June isn't just National Safety Month - it's also the beginning of summer and the season of road trips and vacations.

Accident reviews show that had seat belts been worn, nearly half these Soldiers would still be in the ranks because the survivable space inside their vehicles wasn't compromised.
