The Department of Defense observes SAAPM every April to raise awareness and educate communities on the prevention of sexual violence. The Army’s 2015 SAAPM theme is “Not in My Squad. Not in Our Army. We Are Trusted Professionals.”

This theme emphasizes the ethical commitment each member of the total Army Family must adopt to ensure every Soldier, Department of the Army Civilian and their Family members are treated with dignity and respect.

Established October 1977, Crane Army Ammunition Activity maintains ordnance professionals and infrastructure in order to receive, store, ship, produce, renovate and demilitarize conventional ammunition, missiles, and related components. Crane Army maintains up to one-third of the DoD’s conventional ammunition inventory. The Activity also provides command oversight of the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant, Letterkenny Munitions Center, Pennsylvania, and Milan Army Ammunition Plant, Tennessee.
