Support Our Troops With Red
With the actions in Libya and continued efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq, here's a great way to support our troops. It comes from one of country music's biggest stars.
George Strait is wearing red – to show his support for our troops as part of Red Shirt Fridays. The mission of redshirtfridays.org is to show support for our servicemen and women. It is not a political organization but a way to let our country’s servicemen and women know we support their sacrifice and will not forget them by wearing red on every Friday.
Strait, a veteran himself, wanted to join the efforts of RedShirtFridays.org and invite his fans and fellow Americans to do the same.
“We are going to wear red shirts to every Friday’s tour date and we encourage the fans to do the same,” exclaims Strait.
George has 2 more Friday shows. to encourage Red Shirt Fridays at his concerts before the current tour ends on April 9th in Louisville.
