Red Friday

As a Veteran Owned Business Cerberus Building Technologies believes in promoting awareness for our nations Veterans.  You may have noticed that members of Team Cerberus wear red on Fridays.  We wear red on Friday's to remind everyone to Remember Everyone Deployed. 

The events of September 11, 2001 undoubtedly changed the lives of Americans across the country. But the rubble of the Twin Towers has long been cleared, Freedom Tower now in their place, and most Americans have returned largely to the same lives they led before the attacks.

Men and women of the United States military haven’t had this option. These men and women continue to volunteer to fight an enemy thousands of miles from home.

The relatively normal lives we take for granted is a testament to the incredible job they’ve done to protect our quality of life. But we owe it to each of them to better understand the struggles they face not only in combat, but when they return home.

R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) Fridays asks everyone to wear the color red to let our servicemen and servicewomen know that we have not forgotten them, and that we appreciate their sacrifice for the country.

Threats to our security are more diverse today than ever before, and to combat these dangers requires the combined effort of our active and reserve components.

Today, mothers and fathers in the reserves and National Guard join their Active Duty counterparts on the front lines. Many have served several deployments. All have put careers, families and their entire lives on hold in order to serve their country.

To the thousands of men and women who served, Operation Enduring Freedom was not simply a story on the news, and it will not simply be a chapter in a history book. Americans everywhere must fight the temptation to relegate their sacrifices to the same fate, by actively remembering the cost behind each deployment.

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.

Team Cerberus salutes our current and former service members and their families.  Their voluntary sacrifice for our country and all those who reside within her borders should never be diminished or forgotten.
