SALISBURY, Md.- The Salisbury Fire Department announced Wednesday that from now until Labor Day, its members will wear red t-shirts while on duty every Friday, as a way to Remember Everyone Deployed (RED) and show support to our men and women currently serving in our Armed Forces overseas.

The SFD said the idea of wearing red clothing on Fridays began some time ago, and represents a simple, yet powerful way of showing our gratitude to our deployed Armed Forces personnel. Salisbury fire officials said the department has had numerous personnel deployed through various branches of the military over the years, and this is just one way for them to say "thank you" to those members, as well as other brave men and women currently deployed.

All money raised from the purchase of the shirts, as well as personal donations, will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
