There is no exact origin on how RED Fridays came about. However, there are many stories and news articles about various people who have started the “RED” movement in different parts of the United States. Fox news reported from Mansfield University, Mansfield, Pennsylvania that

“Cecil Cooper, a student in the Department of Geo-sciences and Army veteran, began the program on April 3rd, 2015. Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff gathered together on campus to launch the awareness campaign but the ultimate mission is a lasting tradition that became engrained into the community. Wearing a specific colored shirt might seem like a trivial act, but the meaning behind it is significant. It translates to mean that as you prepared for your day, you recognized that others are playing an active role to allow you to go to work or class with relative peace of mind that you are safe. Our service members are on call 24 hours a day, seven days per week, 52 weeks per year. They willingly ensure our safety and freedom. Let’s wear red and make it a point to Remember Everyone Deployed!”

It is the sole mission of Remember Everyone Deployed to unite all Americans who support this cause and have the entire United States wearing RED on Fridays.


Gloria De Paul the CEO/Founder of R.E.D, started working as an Admission Representative for Florida National University in 2005 in the distance learning department. The University had signed a contract with the US Navy to provide A.A and B.A degrees. FNU strives for academic excellence being a SACS approved University. The director of military affairs requested Gloria to initiate enrollment process for their first military students, thus, her love for the military began. Gloria related well with her students establishing a wonderful connection with every single one. She was reliable, efficient, focused and a cooperative team member in the Military Department at FNU. Gloria has traveled to Camp Pendleton in San Diego, California for educational fairs for the U.S Marines and has participated in events at Homestead Air Reserve Base in Homestead, Florida and The American Legion Post 29 just to name a few.

Gloria’s main goal in 2016 is to spread the word regarding R.E.D Fridays, a cause she has supported for the past 11 years by wearing RED on Fridays to Remember Everyone Deployed. She is currently living in Jacksonville, NC; home to Camp LeJeune the Marine Corps Installation East, Marine Corps Base. Gloria’s goal is to start her project of support in this military community and continue carrying the message to the national levels. Her idea is showing solidarity and support for our troops, beginning Friday and continuing on to each and every Friday until all our troops come home.
