This thread is not to debate if our troops should be where they are or not. This thread is only an attempt to support our troops, the men and women that put their life on the line everyday.
July is support our troops month. The Hamilton Police Service have acknowledged this and are flying a Canadian Military Flag at their police stations to show their support. Here is the link:http://www.hamiltonpolice.on.ca/HPS/ChiefMessage.htm
Here is a quote from that link "We are so proud today to raise the Canadian Forces Ensign at our three police stations for the month of July, as our tribute to our members who give twice to our communities – as members of our Service and as members of Canada’s military; and also as a tribute to the Canadian Forces – we are partners in our mission to provide security to our people."
As some of you may also know, all year round some people wear red on Fridays to support our troops.
Here is a link for that sitehttp://www.redfridays.ca/
The Ticats have three home games this year on Friday.
Friday July 25th vs Edmonton
Friday Sep 19 vs Winnipeg (ticats want fans to wear black this game, same as the team)
Friday Oct 24 vs Calgary (Calgary's colour is red so we can not do it that night)
So I am suggesting that we show we support our troops at the home game against Edmonton on Friday July 25th by wearing red. I am sure if enough of us do it, it will not only look great on TV but will make the news across Canada and more importantly, over to our troops.
