Honor our troops!
This came over the army moms yahoo group. So thought I would pass this on. I am going to do this and try to get all of my family to do this too!
Wish I could take credit for this idea, but it's not mine. We plan to do this EVERY Friday until all our troops return home.
It has come to my attention that more than a few Americans support our troops, but as usual, we are the silent majority.
We are not "organized" to really reflect who we are, nor our opinions.
We would like to start a grass roots movement using the membership of the Special Operations Association and the Special Forces Association to recognize Americans who support our troops.
My idea is not to stand on street corners once or twice, not to carry stupid signs in a rally, not to carry our flag in parades. Its much simpler than that. We need to inform the local VFW's and American Legion, our local press, local TV, and even continue carrying the message up to the national levels as we start to get this going.
Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is that starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, that we and every red blooded American who supports our young men and women,
WEAR SOMETHING RED.
Word of mouth, press, TV, lets see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at the University of Oklahoma or University of Nebraska. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow Christians, fellow workers, country club friends, neighbors, I guarantee you that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - much to the disdain of the un-American ralliers.
Lets get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays. Thanks for your time and consideration of my proposal. I intend to send this out to everyone on my e-mail list; hopefully you will too. Please forward this to everyone you know!!
