I wish I could take credit for this idea, but it's not mine. I plan to do this EVERY Friday until all our troops return home.
It has come to my attention that quite 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. I 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 (although I would be proud to carry the flag anytime). It's 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. My 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, 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 the University of Nebraska. If everyone of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, drinking buddies, country club friends, fellow church members, 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.
