"Bring our troops home" is a statement of hope.
"Bring our troops home" is a statement of hope.I wanted to do something for our troops and our country. This is why we created the Bring our Troops Home (B.O.T.H.) magnetic peace sign. As a former U.S. Navy, Vietnam-era, Submarine Veteran, and current U.S. Navy civil servant, I feel very deeply the personal sacrifice that our men and women in the military give everyday to our country; I see it in their faces, their uniforms and in our flag. We want to honor them by selling these magnetic peace signs as a fund raiser, to help support some web-based support groups that stand behind our troops, and their families.
The hand symbol is an old fashioned way of saying Peace, peace for our troops and our country, and peace to the world. The yellow color is to symbolize the hope we feel when we send our troops overseas and put them in harm's way. Our customs in the past used a yellow ribbon to welcome home men and women who have been away for along time under adverse or particularly difficult circumstances such as war or prison. The stars and stripes in the background are a symbol of the flag of our country and the freedoms we enjoy. The message, Bring our Troops Home, is for our troops who went, who saw, who fought, and who got the job done, as we asked of them, and now it is time for them to proudly come home as our heroes.
A percentage of the sale of each magnetic peace sign will be donated to to several charities, including Veterans for Peace, Operation We Care, and others to be named in the weeks ahead. The remainder of each magnetic sign sold is for operations, production and shipping.
You can also order our magnets from Devil in the Woods E-Store, a supportive independent record label out of Modesto, CA. Thanks for helping us spread the word you guys!
