The Department of the Army has proclaimed August 2013 as Antiterrorism Awareness Month. Terrorism is an enduring, persistent, worldwide threat to our nation. Army forces must seek to understand the threat, detect terrorist activities, and warn and defend against the full range of terrorist tactics. AT is the defense element in our fight against terrorists and is an integral part of Army efforts to defeat terrorism. This year’s themes are Recognizing and reporting suspicious activity as a part of iWatch Army, Use of social media to support Antiterrorism awareness and community outreach, and Law Enforcement as a critical enabler for the protection of Army communities.
