Thumbs up got a cool email...

got this email today


Subject: Support our Troops


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.

I RECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM A 1958 GRADUATE OF
MY OWN HIGH SCHOOL, WHO NOW LIVES IN PLANO, TX.
SOME OF YOU WILL REMEMBER GLENDA(GIVENS) HEADEN.

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.

The idea is not to stand on street corners once or twice, not to
carry 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.
The 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 Nebraska. If every one of our memberships share
this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, drinking buddies,
country club friends, I guarantee you that it will not be long before
the USA will be covered in RED - muchto the disdain of the 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.
When I get home, I intend to send this out to everyone on my
e-mail list; hopefully, you will too.

"Messages of Support" can be e-mailed to "Stars and Stripes" 24 hours a day at [email protected], are limited to 50 words or less and will be printed on a first-come, first-run basis.

Purchase "Gifts From the Homefront" gift certificate These can be redeemed by troops in their local exchange. Anyone may purchase these "Gifts From the Homefront" with a U.S. credit card or check, but only authorized AAFES customers can redeem them at any PX or BX. Sold by CertifiChecks, these gift certificates can be purchased 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, and they come in denominations of $10 and $20. At this time military authorities have advised that CertifiChecks can only be sent to a specific service member at his or her APO or US mailing address. AAFES officials said they are currently working to find a solution to allow CertifiChecks to be sent to units or non-specific troops.

This is an email I got through my headquarters in Houston. If there is anything on here that interests anyone please act on it.
