YONGSAN GARRISON, Republic of Korea - Hundreds of Seoul American High School students gathered at the school auditorium Oct. 29.
USAG-Yongsan Commander Col. Dave Hall spoke to them about substance abuse awareness in spirit of National Red Ribbon Week.
"If you go down the path of drugs," he said, "there is no future."
Hall stressed that underage students are not allowed to smoke on the Garrison, even if their parents allow it. "We have a no smoking policy," he said.
Hall spoke to the students because "first and foremost, we want our youth population to know that we care."
Hall said he is committed to providing Families "a strong, supportive environment where they can thrive," one of the primary tenents of the Army Family Covenant.
