The youth were also informed of the dangers of drugs, through displays from the Florida National Guard Drug Demand Reduction unit a s well a s t he Civil Air Patrol US Air Force Auxiliary Drug Demand Reduction unit, and the Foundation for a Drug- Free World. The Foundation also distributed the Truth About Drugs booklets, giving youth the information they need to stand up to peer-pressure and decide for themselves to be drug-free. Youth in attendance also took the Drug-Free Marshals pledge, promising to remain drug-free and to encourage their peers to do the same.
