HURLBURT FIELD — If you drive on or around Hurlburt Field, chances are you’ve seen some cars sporting a magnetic green dot.
The unusual accessory is designed to start a conversation. The goal is that the question “What’s with the green dot?” will lead to a discussion about Green Dot training.
The Air Force has contracted Green Dot, etc. to present the training, which gives students tools to intervene in a potentially violent situation.
For Tech Sgt. Jeremy Davey, the training, which he completed in early May, had almost immediate real-world applications.
Earlier this month, Davey and his wife, Svetlana, and their nearly 2-year-old daughter, Zoey, were enjoying a day at Navarre Beach.
“If you’ve ever been there, you know that to your right are the hotels and condos, and to the left there’s absolutely nothing,” Davey said. “I happened to look over to the left, and I saw something.”
The “something” was a young man who was propping up a young woman who was clearly having trouble walking.
