The first Friday in February (February 4) is National Wear Red Day. On this day, which is considered American Heart Month, everyone across the country dons the color red in order to raise and spread awareness in hopes to help eradicate heart disease and stroke in millions of women all over the nation. Whether it be a lipstick, a pair of pants, or your favorite hat — wear your red!!
But don't stop at the first Friday of February. Wear your red EVERY Friday to raise awareness of the hardships of the deployed and their families. Remember Everyone Deployed (R.E.D.) was created with the motto of "MAKE MILITARY LIFE EASIER" while showing solidarity and support for our deployed service members and their families until they return home.
So, on this February 4th, please wear your red! It will have dual purpose. Next week, wear your red to remember everyone deployed.
