Hopefully the weather will co operate this year and make this a banner year for the annual fundraiser.
Wearing red shows support for troops
Warren county is a patriotic county, with many retired service men and women living here. We also have many from the county who have sacrificed their lives for their nation, including Ben Osborn who died in June during combat in Afghanistan.
I recently read an article asking everyone to wear the color red on Fridays to express support for our troops, and I think it is a good idea. I hear that some unions advocate wearing a certain color on particular days to promote solidarity.
Wearing red on Fridays will tell your fellow Americans that you support our troops fighting for our freedom. and that you are proud to be an American.
