The Department of Defense (DoD) annually recognizes individuals (military or civilian) from each military service and their respective reserve component, who are selected as the Exceptional Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) either on an installation, deployed environment, or in a reserve component. This program recognizes individuals whose work has been particularly noteworthy, and demonstrates outstanding service in support of Service members. Recognition is annually completed in conjunction with outreach programs within each of the six military components each April during Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM).
