Domestic violence is a significant, serious issue for Fort Hood Soldiers and Families. The impact of violence on children and Families causes damage that spans lifetimes and even generations. As a result, the issue has the direct attention of Bell County and Maj. Gen. Anthony Ierardi, commanding general of the 1st Cavalry Division and senior commander at Fort Hood.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month at Fort Hood. The focus given by military leaders on this critical matter both heightens community awareness and highlights the support available to those affected by violence in the home.
