R.E.D. Shirt Friday is TOMORROW, and we, at KeyMedia Solutions are excited to participate! Join us in showing support for all service members deployed by participating in R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) Shirt Friday on February 26th.  Wearing red is a small way to remind those serving and their families that they are in our thoughts and we are grateful for their service.

R.E.D. Shirt Day is Personal for KeyMedia Solutions

KeyMedia feels a strong connection to R.E.D. Shirt day. For us, wearing red not only means supporting our service members but supporting our fellow teammate, Jake Stingley. We are deeply grateful for the sacrifice he and his family are making to protect our nation. We miss Jake every day but know his lightheartedness and good-humored conversations are brightening the lives of those around him. Jake is currently on a one-year deployment overseas, and we cannot wait until he returns home. We will honor his selflessness by wearing red this Friday and by finding ways to support service members in our communities throughout the year.
