On March 30, 2012 in observance of Red Friday, a tradition keeping our troops in the hearts and minds of those they and their families sacrifice daily for, Crane Interior management Mark Scott, Larry Officer, and Donnie Cromer, as well as near 50% of plant employees by the collective display of the wearing of red proudly exhibited their support for America's heroes.
Photos were taken throughout the plant to be forwarded to LCpl. Philip Mark Rhyne, USMC and his brothers and sisters in arms.

Let us not forget as we go about our daily lives the reasons we are able to do so and continually keep them in our prayers. We thank you each and everyone and recognize the sacrifices made in the name of freedom. Freedom is not Free!
