A healthy military is a productive military - that's the message for a new health promotion and wellness campaign from the US Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center.

The campaign kicked off Tuesday with a special event and guest speakers aboard the USS Bataan.

"We are empowering sailors to make the right decisions on liberty, so that when they come back, they come back healthy and they are ready to go to work. "

The goal of the campaign is to make sure sailors and marines are aware of all the health services available.
