Staff Sgt. Lacey Matthews, 403rd Aircraft Maintainance Squadron crew chief, explains reactive and proactive Green Dots during a training class Nov. 5 at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. Green Dot is the U.S. Air Force's program to help raise awareness of and prevent sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking.(U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney) Green Dot sparks culture change
Sexual assault strips away a person’s humanity. It violates their most essential and basic human right – the right to control their own body, to feel safe in their own skin. And far too often the victim blames themselves for something that shouldn’t ever be considered their fault by anyone. Ever. By anyone. Green Dot is a national program adopted by the Air Force, which not only aims to shift that perception, but to give people real tools they can use when they find themselves in a bystander situation.

Imagine being strapped into the back of a C-130J Super Hercules on a litter, fighting to breathe while being whisked toward a hospital that can provide critical care. Not only are there pilots, navigators and loadmasters ensuring the aircraft makes it to the hospital safely, there are flight nurses and aeromedical evacuation technicians standing by to administer medical procedures, check equipment and respond to any emergencies that could arise during the flight. Today the 36th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron conducted their first training mission out of Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., practicing this very scenario.
