MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENETYNINE PALMS, Calif. -- The Provost Marshal’s Office, Military Working Dog Section performed a military working dog demonstration for the students of Condor Elementary School Oct. 29, 2015. The demonstration was held as part of the school’s Red Ribbon Week curriculum.
Red Ribbon Week is held on the last full week of October every year. The tradition of Red Ribbon Week began in the 1980s after drug cartels abducted and killed Enrique Camarena, a former Marine who became a drug enforcement agent stationed in Mexico. Red Ribbon Week is held to raise awareness to drug abuse and make our communities clean and drug free places to live.
