Sailor puts tamper seal on urine sample for drug test

In the wake of news that it kicked 1,515 Sailors out of the service for Spice use in 2011, the Navy announced this week the launch of a new anti-drug campaign. It's called "Who Will Stand Your Watch," and the goal is to remind Sailors how substance abuse can hurt every aspect of their lives.

Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention (NADAP) director Dorice Favorite says:

The Navy has a zero tolerance policy for drug use.

The "Who Will Stand Your Watch" campaign will utilize public service announcements, posters, and pamphlets to get the word out about how damaging drug use and alcohol abuse can be to a Sailor and his or her family.
