God bless them and keep them safe.


Nobody can do everything,

but everyone can do something.

In 2006, a Canadian effort to promote RED caught on in events all over Canada–and likely thanks in no small part due to a combination of a desire to support the troops and overall patriotism. Red is, after all, a predominant color in the Canadian flag. It wasn’t long until someone taking part in the Canadian effort thought it would be a very good idea to bring RED to the USA.

Lloyd Hofmeister, a former Marine, is credited with bringing the RED concept across the border into America, in part because in his words, low morale among the troops has dangerous consequences. He acknowledged that it wasn’t his idea but was motivated by a desire to raise that morale by letting troops know in a culturally visible way that they are supported in their efforts in combat zones, deployments, and overseas assignments.
