Red Friday


Be a part of RED FRIDAY...Support the troops!

Ask a uniformed member of the U.S. military, "What can I do to make things better for you?"
You will likely receive in reply, "We need your support and prayers."

You can show your support of the troops by example:
wear some thing RED every Friday.

Americans who support the troops used to be called the "silent majority". They are no longer silent. They are individually demonstrating support for the troops. They are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing. They get little, if any, news media coverage on TV or in newspapers to reflect their message or opinions.

Many Americans simply want a way to show that the vast majority of Americans support their troops. The idea of civilians showing solidarity and support for the troops with dignity and respect will happen every Friday and continue each and every Friday until the troops come home, sending a quiet but deafening message.

By word of mouth and example every Friday --- Americans can make the United States a SEA OF RED, much like fans support their team at a homecoming football game. If every individual who supports the troops will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED ON FRIDAY to let our uniformed military members know that the once "silent majority" is in full support of the troops.

WE LIVE IN THE HOME OF THE FREE, ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!


I actually saw this on another site but thought it was post worthy.

Yeah... I really appreciated when people wore the same color when I was in the Army. *sigh*

You wanna show support?

* Write a letter to a soldier over seas.
* Donate to the U.S.O
* Visit http://anysoldier.com
* Send a care package
* If you cant afford a stamp... then simply say thank you and shake a soldiers hand (locally of course)

I just don't see what wearing a certain color does for our troops. At least with the yellow ribbons that were sold during Desert Storm, the money spent on the ribbons generally went to support the troops somehow.

When I was in the Army, I appreciated any signs that showed support for the military and still do.

I do too... but there is an inherit flaw in this plan of support.

People will be wearing red on a friday wether they support us or not.... its just a color.

Viewing this from the other side of the fence, I dont know if this person is showing me support for walking the wall... or if the red shirt just really looked good with those pants that day.
