RED FRIDAYS

Red Fridays

RED FRIDAYS —– You will see a great many people wearing red every Friday. The reason… Americans who support our troops used to be called the ‘silent majority’. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers.

Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday – and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that… “Every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear something red”.

By word of mouth, press, TV — let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.
