(Ms. Kayla Turnbow) Navy Office of Community Outreach.

ZAMBALES, Philippines (Oct. 18, 2019) U.S. Navy Hull Maintenance Technician Fireman Camryn Currier, from Gilbert, Ariz., assigned to Assault Craft Unit 5, secures a Marine truck to a landing craft, air cushion during exercise KAMANDAG 3. USS John P. Murtha (LPD 26) is participating in KAMANDAG 3, a Philippine-led bilateral exercise, with participation from Japan, designed to increase counterterrorism, humanitarian assistance, and disaster relief capabilities through military exchanges that strengthen partnership and the ability to rapidly respond to crises throughout the Indo-Pacific region. KAMANDAG is an acronym for the Filipino phrase “Kaagapay Ng Mga Mandirigma Ng Dagat,” which translates to “Cooperation of Warriors of the Sea,” highlighting the partnership between the U.S. and the Philippine militaries.

If your company would like to be a part of the Wear Red on Fridays radio campaign, call 480-319-6565.
Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason Americans who support our troops used to be called the “silent majority.” We are no longer silent and are voicing our love for God, country, and home in record-breaking
numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. Many Americans, like you, me and our friends, simply want to recognize the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday – – and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that…every red-blooded American who support our men and women afar will wear something red. By
word of mouth, press, TV – Let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.
If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once “silent” majority is on their side more than ever,
certainly more than the media lets on.
The first thing a soldier says when asked “What can we do to make things better for you?” is, “We need your support and your prayers.” Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example and wear something red every Friday.
