By Mr. Aaron P Talley (IMCOM)February 23, 2015
"See Something…Say Something."It's a simple phrase that we've all heard many times, but do we really know what it means? What exactly are we looking for? And do we really know what do to if we see it?Well, to help us better understand the importance of identifying suspicious activity and the proper way to report it, the Department of the Army's Office of the Provost Marshal General came up with an anti-terrorism awareness program called "iWATCH". According to U.S. Army Garrison Vicenza Antiterrorism Officer Jesse Markum, the program focuses on protecting our communities from terrorist attacks by spreading the word about being vigilant and responding immediately to any unusual behavior we witness in our local communities."iWATCH, in many ways, is the lifeblood of the USAG Vicenza Antiterrorism Program," said Markum.When you visit the "iWATCH" webpage, you'll have access to all sorts of training materials and resources, including informational papers and a downloadable Individual Protective Measures Graphic Training Aids Card that you can keep in your wallet. There are also posters and videos that will help you know what to look for and how to report it."Here within the USAG-Vicenza family," Markum said, "we are dependent on our personnel to be vigilant, watchful, and report suspicious activity."If you have any questions about the "iWATCH" program, you can call DSN 637-8021 (Comm. 0444-61-8021) or send an Email to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you do notice anything unusual in the Vicenza community, you should call the MP Desk at DSN 634-7626 (Comm. 0444-71-7626). Do your part to prevent a terrorist attack in our community."See Something…Say Something."
