AADD is an initiative to safely return all grades of active duty, guard, reserve, retirees, DOD civilians, and dependents of the above to a residence if they are unable to drive themselves.
To prevent deaths, injuries and illegal actions that result from driving under the influence; Educate base personnel on the severe consequences of driving under the influence and the importance of having a plan.
AADD volunteers do not wear uniforms or use rank. Location, number of people with you, first name, and callback number - this is all that is needed to get home. Do not worry; your information will not be used for anything other than making contact.
Getting a ride
