Wear Red on Fridays--Show Support for the Troops
My grandfather recently told me that he was working with the American Legion in south central Texas to support an idea that has been around for the last year or two. I have decided to help the cause as much as possible. We are urging all patriotic Americans to wear something red each and every Friday while our troops are in harm's way. Please support this cause by making a special effort. In light of the sacrifices our troops are making, this shouldn't be too difficult. http://www.patrioticfridays.com/ WEAR SOMETHING RED Feb 3, 2005 - Mar 5, 2005 11:00 AM Any town, USA The Americans who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, nor to reflect what our opinions are. We would like to start a grassroots movement using the membership of the Special Operations Association, and Special Forces Associations, and all their friends, simply, to recognize that Americans support our troops. We need to inform the local VFW's and American Legion, our local press, local TV, and continue carrying the message to the national levels as we start to get this going. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is -- starting Friday, and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red-blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. Let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays. I sent this out to everyone on my email list; hopefully, you will too.
