Thank you for sharing. My son and grandson are both deployed. Our families are missing them.

I was in total shock, and what a wonderful think to do for us, and someday and waiting patiently to pay it forward, it was such a blessing....

Me too!
This has been in place in our area for a while. I started seeing red T-shirts etc and couldn't figure out why, so I asked and was told it was support for our troops.

Now that I've cleared the tears from my eyes - sending you a big thank you for sharing this wonderful story - I'll be emailing this on to friends & family and wearing red on Fridays!

Well, this is the first I've heard of Red Friday's, but I will certainly be in red every Friday from now on. Thanks Ditter!

Thank you Ditter for posting this. People just do not understand what it takes to send your only son off to war. Mine is on his second tour in Afgh.

Thanks for sharing this touching story I teared up so much could hardly finish reading it.We often forget how much our men and women and their families sacrifice for us everyday.
