Red Friday: Remembering Everyone Deployed

Red Friday is a day to remember all of the deployed troops. It falls on the Friday before Memorial Day, and it is a day when we show our support for military members and their families. On this day, people wear a red shirt to show their dedication to those who are fighting for our country. Red Friday is also a time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We owe so much to the men and women who serve in the military, and we should take every opportunity to thank them for their service.

Some history on Red Friday

The tradition of wearing red on Friday originated to show support for the military began during World War II. On Friday, May 15, 1942, the Chicago Tribune published a front-page article with the headline "Wear Red Tomorrow." The article encouraged Americans to do this as a sign of solidarity with the troops.

In the years since Red Friday has continued to grow in popularity. People all over the country show their support for military members and their families on Red Friday. Some businesses give discounts to those who wear red on Fridays, and many schools hold special assemblies or events to remember the troops who have served our country.

Red Friday is a time to remember all of those who have served our country, and it is a day when we can come together to show our appreciation for their sacrifice. We should never forget the troops who are fighting for our freedom, and we should always be grateful for their service. Thanks to all of our military members for their dedication and service. We remember you today and always.
