As the military community across Okinawa get ready for the President’s Day weekend; volunteers from MWHS-1, CFAO, USNHO, and III MEF Commands led by the Okinawa Island Wide First and Second Class Petty Officer’s Association (OIWFSCPOA) stayed behind and displayed some positive messages and safety reminders for those heading off-base.

Launched in 2015, The “Protect What You've Earned Long Weekend Send Off Campaign” is a coordinated event between various unit representatives representing different military bases on Okinawa with a common goal: Promote Safety and be good ambassadors to our Host Nation. Signs seen held by volunteers towards the exit gates during the campaign included:

Protect What You've Earned
Control What You Own
Do not forget your ID / Liberty Card
Have a Liberty Buddy
Don't Drink, Don't Drive
Have a Plan
Have a Safe Weekend
Drink Responsibly

OIWFSCPOA Officials plans to continue the campaign before long holiday weekends all throughout the year.

Be smart out there!
