Red Shirt Friday is one way ordinary Americans can show unity and support for the military personnel who have served or are currently serving our country. Soldiers have sacrificed their personal freedom, safety, comfort, time with their families and many have given their lives so we might enjoy ours.
Take the opportunity at the mall, the grocery store or at the airport and say thank you to a soldier.
The Soldier: - By Charles M. Province
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
If you can read this message thank a teacher,
If you are reading it in English of your own free will THANK A SOLDIER!
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.
To all the brave men and women who have dedicated or given their lives
to protect this country and its freedoms:
Wear Red on Friday and show your Support for our Troops locally at Monument Terrace every Friday at noon with Red Shirt Friday
