Around the world, people are showing their support for the troops by participating in “Red Shirt Fridays,” where individuals wear a red shirt to show their support for our servicemen and women. DynCorp International has joined the trend and doing good at the same time.
DynCorp International’s company store is now selling red polos embroidered with the words: “Support the troops – Red Shirt Fridays.”
For each shirt sold, DynCorp International is donating $10 to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a non-profit that cares for the families of the fallen. TAPS provides support to military and contractor families who have lost a loved one, and it is particularly special to DI because it has helped the families of DI personnel who have lost their lives while on mission.
