A sign at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia was supposed to let airmen know that April is “Sexual Assault Awareness Month,” but someone left out a key word, said base spokesman Harry Lundy.
“It was a typographical mistake that was corrected first thing this morning,” Lundy said in an email Monday afternoon. “In all, the error was displayed for less than 24 hours and does not take away from the seriousness of sexual assault awareness.”
The base plans a series of events this month to raise awareness about sexual assault including personal safety classes, a fundraiser for sexual assault victims and a “Take Back the Night” march to support victims of sexual assault, Lundy said.
“The Joint Base Langley-Eustis community takes this matter very seriously and does not see this error as a means to take it lightly,” he said.
