Color Always Means Something

Especially in military uniforms. Think about how much art there really is in the uniforms of our armed forces. The red stripe down the pants of the Marine Corps dress uniform is the "blood" stripe, symbolic of unusually heavy casualties in a significant battle.

Each little piece of cord and ribbon means something. They're not just clothes. Imagine how much more carefully you would choose your clothing if the details all meant something.

The first person to identify the meaning of the ribbon on my little card uniform wins a prize today. And all of you are required to stop and give thanks for people who wear these while we stamp :).

    I make sure to give thanks to my father-in-law all the time for his service during WW II. And nothing beats seeing a soldier out and about and stopping to thank them, it really brings a smile to their faces!
