The Defense Department is working to prevent domestic violence.

DoD's Family Advocacy Program works with military couples and families to show them how to build healthier relationships, Defense.gov reports. Because military life is challenging, better communication can help couples work through the challenges.

The program's manager, Kathy Robertson, said when violence does happen, DoD offers a variety of support services for victims.
